EFFECTS OF REPEATED HEAD TRAUMA IN THE NFL
Discover the world of sports management through the AISTS Sports Medicine podcast, featuring interviews with leading experts, professionals and academics.
Sports medicine is one of the scientific disciplines of the AISTS Master of Advanced Studies programme and is led by Dr Boris Gojanovic. It brings participants up to speed with the current challenges in maintaining a healthy and performing human athletic body.
This month’s AISTS Sports Medicine podcast, presented by Gustavo Garrido and Zhen Ma looks more in-depth into the effects of repeated head traumas with NFL players. The studies about the effects of repeated head trauma on American football players are rather new. A study completed in 2007 concluded that “professional football players with a history of three of more concussions are in a greater risk for having depressive episodes later in life compared with those players with no history of concussions.” This podcast will take a deep dive into this research and more and also speak more on Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).
