    Contrary to what many believe, despite the brain’s delicacy and vulnerability to damage from concussions and repeated sub-concussive hits, the brain is also capable of healing. He has edited six books including “Rehabilitation of Post-Concussive Disorders,” “Medical Rehabilitation of Traumatic Brain Injury,” “Rehabilitation of Functional Disorders,” “Brain Injury Medicine: Principles and Practice”, Editions 1 and 2, and “Clinical Manual for the Management of Adults with Traumatic Brain Injury”.

    A comprehensive guide for improving memory, focus, and quality of life in the aftermath of a concussion. Every thirteen seconds, a concussion/mild traumatic brain injury happens somewhere in the world, whether it’s from an automobile accident assault, fall, blast injury, or sports collision. Taut, gripping, and gorgeously told, Concussion is the stirring true story of one unlikely man’s courageous decision to stand up to a multibillion-dollar colossus bent on silencing him, and to tell the world the truth.

    Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) is a complex disorder and the complete pathophysiology is still not completely understood. PCS can be subcategorized into physiological PCS, vestibulo-ocular PCS, cervicogenic PCS, and mood-related PCS based on predominant clinical signs and symptoms. Physiological PCS is the most classic type of PCS and is due to global metabolic dysfunction in the brain Author: Mohammad Nadir Haider, Itai Bezherano.   Most people with a TBI recover well from symptoms experienced at the time of the injury. Most TBIs that occur each year are mild, commonly called concussions, which is a mild TBI. 1 But for some people, symptoms can last for days, weeks, or longer. In general, recovery may be slower among older adults, young children, and teens.
