One of the most serious problems facing sports is the epidemic of concussions that is occurring among athletes. In fact, the concussion crisis has received (and continues to receive) widespread coverage in the national media. Development of Neck Strength and the Potential for Concussion Risk Reduction covers the latest scientific literature on concussions by examining the definition, symptoms, risk factors, and steps that can be taken to reduce the incidence and severity of this traumatic injury. The DVD points out that concussions are not just a football problem. They can also be a concern in other sports, including soccer, hockey, baseball, softball, rugby, boxing, and wrestling. Furthermore, the DVD discusses the fact that the concussion epidemic affects female athletes, as well as male athletes. Finally, the DVD reviews emerging research that shows that improving neck strength can help reduce the number and the degree of seriousness of concussions. In that regard, the DVD details how the neck responds and adapts to resistance training.
