An estimated 2 million sports-related concussions will occur each year and only 50% or less are reported. Behind the scenes of your star studded athletes is a dark secret of progressive brain trauma. Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is a degenerative brain condition that is linked to repetitive hits to the head. The results of brain degeneration are fatal. A 2017 Boston University study concluded that 87% of the tested deceased players were diagnosed with CTE. Undiagnosable until after death, this disease is being overlooked. The research gap in athlete brain trauma is the driving force behind brain degenerative conditions in our athletes.
