Thomas Mueller, soccer star on Germany’s team in the World Cup, returned to the field shortly after suffering a head injury last month. Chris Nowinski, former professional wrestler for World Wrestling Entertainment, returned to the sport again and again despite blows to his head. Approximately 300,000 sports injuries are related to Traumatic Brain Injuries. Young athletes think they are strong and invincible, so they persist in returning to their favorite sport after they recover from a sports injury. Thomas Mueller and Chris Nowinski are classic examples. Studies show that repeated blows to the head cause long-term consequences years after the incident(s) such as memory loss, massive headaches, depression, cognitive decline, and production of amyloid plaques and tau in the brain, which are found in individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease.
