According to the federal centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the year 2013 most of the 2.8 million traumatic brain injury-related hospitalizations were concussions. Concussions are usually thought to be the result of sports like football and soccer but Dr. Grace Walker, physical and occupational therapist and nutritionist, knows that concussions can result from something as serious as a car accident to a simple slip and fall. People who play contact sports are much more susceptible to concussions and are at risk for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease that occurs after repeated trauma to the head.
