Brain Injuries

original broadcast Thursday, June 21, 2012

Accomplished athletes Mark Rypien and Sidney Crosby have made headlines recently for suffering the long-term effects of sports-related concussions. We teach our kids to wear bike helmets and fasten our seatbelts in the car, but those safety measures aren’t always enough. Brain injury from head trauma can result in lifelong consequences. We explore the road to recovery from a brain injury and how it affects not just the patient but entire families. Can more be done to protect those we love?
