Dr. Bernard Seif
Clinical Psychology 40 years experience
Concussions: Multiple concussions are more of a concern than a single one. Please see your doctor and a nutritionist for a good food plan that will support brain health. Neurofeedback/biofeedback w/a clinical psychologist can also be good for your brain. Peace and good health.
Dr. James Bucci
Specializes in Internal Medicine
Concussions: It is doubtful these rough 8 weeks will give you CTE. We still are learning alot about it but the cause seems to be repetitive trauma over the course of time. Not just you but many people have whacked their head and so far there hasn't been a wave of CTE in the general population. It is in athletics and not just football so far.
