year in the United States and that the possibility of having a concussion is around 19 each year of play. The statistics are especially high in sports like football where it is estimated 34 of athletes have had one concussion and 20 multiple concussions. Adding to this is the fact that there is a 3 to 6 time’s higher chance of a player having a concussion if they have already suffered from a previous concussion. Research is showing that the incidence of suffering from a concussion while playing soccer is roughly equal to that incidence playing football with other sports like lacrosse baseball basketball and hockey still having significant risks as well. Concussion symptoms may not be visibly seen in standard neurological examinations but consists of an inability to keep a coherent focus or thought stream an inability to perform a series of specific movements dizziness vision disturbances sensitivity to light persisting headaches nausea or vomiting balance issues ringing in the ears confusion and loss of taste or smell to name a few.

This not only disrupts the blood supply to the brain but also affects cerebrospinal fluid drainage and recirculation throughout the entire canal around the spinal cord.
