The driving mission of NeuroSport® is to improve outcomes for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in patients worldwide by working closely with leading professionals and stakeholders to develop the best practice guidelines, conduct clinical research, and educate medical professionals, parents, athletes and consumers.

NeuroSport® is at the forefront of concussion and TBI / CTE treatment, therapy and research. NeuroSport® Institute is a leading research and clinical center for the care of traumatic brain injuries, employing an experienced team of Concussion Specialists, State-of-the-Art Assessment, Treatment, and Prevention Services. The NeuroSport® team includes board-certified rehabilitation doctors, board-certified neurologists, neuropsychologist and a number of other clinicians, all specialized in treating concussion-related problems.

NeuroSport® will combine patient care with research and education and will have the capability to make new, beneficial treatments available to patients more quickly than other facilities can. NeuroSport® breakthrough therapies will and are helping athletes recover from injuries previously thought untreatable and possess an impressive success rate.

NeuroSport® Mission

NeuroSport® Return to Play Baseline pre and post evaluation against Concussion and  Second Impact Syndrome (i.e.; The Next Concussion) will include a diagnostic interview and a clinical medical and neurological evaluation and additional detailed neuropsychological testing.

Every time there is a concussive event, the patient will be assessed pre & post-concussion, through leading computerized analysis systems providing precise measurements of memory, reaction time, brain processing speed, balance, visual-motor coordination, and other neurocognitive measurement related to a potential concussion.<

The 7 Steps of The NeuroSport® will be securely stored and archived, allowing and providing patients and parents with hard information and consequently, informed options. NeuroSport® physicians will be available to treat medical symptoms an athlete may experience as a result of having a concussion, such as headache, fatigue, pain, dizziness, confusion and problems with sleeping and a multiple of behavior issues.

Furthermore, NeuroSport® will be able to further document an athlete’s case and provide the patient with written documents for school or work to explain the support and accommodations required. Additionally, NeuroSport® will serve as a personal resource speaking with athletic personnel, family, employers, and school staff, upon request, if necessary.

NeuroSport® overview on  “Return-to-Play” and Neurological Baseline Assessment against Concussion and Second Impact Syndrome says the effects of repeat concussion injuries on athletes, is one of the biggest concerns in competitive sports today.

Our findings suggest that attempts to monitor and prevent concussions in sport, such as new designs for helmets etc., may be futile, since nothing can change the motion of head movement inflicted by a flying tackle. Head injuries and brain disease persist long after the initial injury and spread through the brain.

Our systematic NeuroSport® baseline model is designed to incorporate state-of-the-art techniques for the detection and tracking of neurocognitive deficits associated with concussion into recently formulated guidelines for the medical management of sport-related concussion.

The NeuroSport® “Return-to-Play” Neurological Baseline Assessment is a 2-21/2 hour baseline  analyses before and after a concussion or high impact sub-concussive repetitive hits to the head.

We know it’s not just the known or diagnosed concussions that may increase risk for [CTE]. It’s also the exposure to how many hits to the head that have occurred and at what velocity and what extent.

Background & Discussion

Misconception and lack of awareness often result in athletes returning to the field before their brains are ready. Head trauma is a fact of life that is baked into the business of sport where it is estimated that the average high school football player absorbs 1,000 blows to the head per season. Yet For the last fifty years, parents, doctors and coaches do not have and have not developed a definitive system to prevent or track concussive and traumatic brain injury.

This is where NeuroSport® steps in and provides an immediate solution as opposed to the all-too-often methodology of ad-hoc initial assessments followed by “wait and see” or a visit to the emergency room upon worsening of symptoms –action, information, initiative and prevention is the key that NeuroSport® provides.

NeuroSport® systems provides baseline neurological mapping coupled with other assessments that create a baseline profile to which future assessments can be compared. These assessments also allow players, patients and stakeholders/caretakers create and affirm positive directives for care, therapy and treatment of concussive injuries, ultimately resulting in better outcomes and a higher standard of care. Further, these assessments also aid in the review of therapies and help provide evidence of efficacy in treatment.

Patients, caretakers, guardians and all stakeholders need realistic, accurate information about cognitive defects and abilities to avoid frustrating, expensive and ineffective care and recovery plans. NeuroSport® endeavors to be a comprehensive solution in a nation that sees approximately one hundred thousand hospitalizations annually for head injuries in children.

The World Wide Concussion Epidemic

NeuroSport® is as a premier specialty clinic that addresses the comprehensive concussion care needs and return to play protocols of athletes of all ages playing high velocity sports; and provides specialized neuropsychological care to people with closed head injuries and memory disorders, conducts concussion baseline assessments (i.e., tests that measure an athlete’s normal neuropsychological and vestibular functioning, typically during the pre-season and/or prior to injury) on middle and high school athletes, and continues to provide concussion education, prevention, and clinical management services to anyone who has suffered a concussion.

The NeuroSport® mission is to reduce the long-term impacts of concussions on athletes and promote the awareness and education of concussion prevention and management among athletes, parents, coaches, athletic trainers, other medical professionals, and schools nationwide.

Implementing a NeuroSport® Concussion Management Program, helps safely guide athletes back to game-play.

  • High School Athletes Sustain 300,000 Concussions per Year.
  • Twelve High School Football Players Died in 2015 due to (SIS) Second Impact Syndrome.
  • There are Upwards of 3 Million Sports and Recreation Related Concussions in the U.S. Each Year.
  • 30,000 U.S. Military Personnel Experience Traumatic Brain Injuries Each Year

Introduction & Agenda

There’s a growing fear parents have about head trauma and its long-term effects and there are no studies out there so it’s all anecdotal. It is accurate that it’s a concern parents have, and rightfully so, of kids being involved in contact sports.

Yet in Southern states. Florida, for example, has 1,252 more boys playing 11-man football this year than it did last year. More notable is that Florida added 65 teams in the past year. Florida is a state that’s dominated by college football. You have three major programs that have won national titles. And then you have other big-time programs, In Florida kids grow up in this culture where football is a big thing. And then you have those three NFL teams.

Finding the right medical, rehabilitative and support resources before and after Concussion can be very challenging.  At NeuroSport® we help you understand more about specific types of traumatic brain injuries and to learn about the services and programs available.

NeuroSport® offers comprehensive evaluation, treatment, support and follow-up care for individuals who have had a concussion or a more severe traumatic brain injury. Through this program, patients and their families benefit from a team of traumatic brain injury Concussion/(TBI) specialists, one-on-one education about the nature of an injury, information about the expected extent of and time-frame for recovery, full treatment/diagnostic technologies, and referrals to additional rehabilitative and support services, as needed. The NeuroSport® Concussion Management Center program includes Neurology, Neuropsychology, and Clinical Psychology with specialized training and expertise in neurorehabilitation.

NeuroSport® brings together core technologies under one roof as a means to deliver custom brain-based programs for treatment, diagnosis and testing to enhance brain performance. Our approach addresses one simple fact: the body can only perform as well as the brain will allow. Whether someone is severely dysfunctional, extraordinarily accomplished, or somewhere in between — all human performance is driven by the brain.

NeuroSport® for Concussion Recovery and TBI Rehabilitation actively address concussion, creating a safe, fast and effective path for you to re-engage fully. We will get you off the sidelines (Return to Play), back to the playing field, the classroom, the office and life quickly. When the brain functions more efficiently, so does the body. We will create a customized brain rehabilitation program focused on restoring functionality in all aspects of your life.

An Open Letter and Answers to America’s Parents Speaking the Full Truth about the Future of Football, Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussions

After leaving the NFL because of repeated concussions, Fred Willis has found a new sense of purpose. Due to the “World Wide Concussion Crises”

The highlights were plentiful during Fred Willis’ football career. “At my age, there are some tough moments, to be honest with you,” Willis says. “It scares me to death to think about waking up some day and not being able to recognize my dogs and family.”

Concerned about the problems in his head, at times dark, desperate thoughts. He was done with football — had been for years — but scared that football wasn’t done with him

“Football isn’t NASCAR. It’s demolition derby. The collisions aren’t accidents. Head trauma is baked into the game, estimates are that the average high school football player absorbs 1,000 blows to the head per season.

“No brain trauma is good brain trauma,” “Parents are fearful about the effects (Symptoms) concussions have on their children, but NeuroSport’s Concussion Management’s 7 Step Approach to Brain Recovery and the Treatment of Concussion through extensive baseline testing and treatment.

Through the 7 Steps of NeuroSport® Concussion Management you can stop or reduce concussions by taking the child’s 7 step baseline results, we then archive, store, maintain and secure their protected health information in our all-important documents retrieval system.

Storing them in our vault In the event the “next concussion” happens—this gives parents an education and hard evidence to make decisions to “Return to Play” and options to eliminate it, short of stopping it completely — this is ground breaking information to understand the world wide concussion crisis and it’s the only thing available to you!

The Threat of Lawsuits has Placed the Burden and Responsibility for “Return to Play” Squarely on the Parents!

“For the last fifty years parents, doctors and coaches have searched for answers to concussions by sending their kids to the emergency hospital rooms and sadly have taken that for granted. “This is not the answer”, Willis says.

QEEG Brain Mapping is the most sensitive neuro-imaging tool for the assessment of post-concussion syndrome “the results are stunning.” We can actually see “hot spots” in the brain that indicate concussion.

The parents need realistic information about their child’s cognitive defects and preserved abilities to avoid false optimism leading to frustrating and exhaustive educational plans. Unfortunately, head injuries are very common with children, accounting for approximately two hundred thousand hospitalizations annually.

But Willis has also found a renewed sense of purpose, embarking on a career as Founder, President & CEO of NeuroSport®, a motivational speaker, as well as treating and working with retired NFL players, College, High School and Youth Sport’s Programs  showing the symptoms of Post-Concussion Syndrome, TBI/CTE through his NFL Retired Players Clinical Trials around the country, he has raised awareness of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in general.

Concussions Brain Impact

What Concussions Do to the Brain at Impact

A concussion is considered the most minor and common type of TBI. A concussion can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. It can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth.

“Concussions are caused by a rapid acceleration and deceleration of the head. This is commonly caused by an impact to the head, but there doesn’t have to be impact,” says Willis. “Think of the brain as sitting inside the hard skull, floating in fluid. If that brain is moved quickly enough, it can disrupt the signals between neurons,”

“The main symptom of concussion is disturbance of consciousness,” Willis says. This can show up as memory problems, difficulty concentrating, personality changes, mood problems, and cognitive performance changes.

“People often describe concussion as resulting in confusion, disorientation, seeing stars—a common expression is ‘having one’s bell rung,’” Willis continues. “Balance can be impaired as the result of concussion. People can also experience vision and hearing changes and headache or head pain.”

“Prior concussion predisposes someone to a worse outcome from a future one,” That’s especially true if the time between those injuries is relatively short because your brain has not fully recovered. Subsequent impacts—although seemingly minor—can have a magnified effect because the brain has already been made especially vulnerable.

Therefore Willis says “The importance of NeuroSport’s Concussion Management is key to today’s athlete’s as we store the pre and post concussion results in a vault for the next time the athlete gets concussed and we have an extremely viable vault of information Parents can see from concussion to concussion.”

Hiding The Truth about concussions.

Hiding the Truth about Concussions

The recent NFL Concussion lawsuit and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, estimates there are between 1.6 million and 3.8 million concussions in the United States every year—the majority of which are from sports injuries, 60% of NFL players will experience post-concussion syndrome after they leave the game. However, the challenges of diagnosing concussions mean that number may not be accurate.

This lack of awareness often results in athletes returning to the field before their brains are ready, which happened throughout Willis’s career.

On average, the symptoms of a concussion last for approximately 10 to 14 days, although the underlying brain injury may last longer. They say the only treatment for concussion is rest, which Willis says is not true as evidenced by his research with retired NFL players and treatment with NeuroSport® High Performance Neurofeedback. It works says Willis we have proven it by seeing dramatic changes in behavior, in most cases in the first session and we back it up and confirm it with pre and post qEEG Brain Maps, pre and post baseline and neuro-cognitive testing.

Willis says “overall everything improves and in most cases dramatically.”

“If you’re concussed and that injury is identified and you’re treated appropriately with NeuroSport® Concussion Management and allowed to recover, you will have no long-term effects. If a first concussion is not treated appropriately, subsequent concussions seem to happen more easily—and can cause more harm.

After a concussion has been diagnosed, the player retakes the NeuroSport® Concussion Management baseline test again at no cost to determine how his/her brain function may have been affected, it is stored in the players concussion vault of information from the first initial baseline examination and is used as part of the criteria for assessing when the player has returned to pre-injury status and can return to play. NeuroSport® Concussion Management’s certified testing center in Deerfield Beach, Florida provides these extensive baseline testing services.

Concussion Facts

Concussion Facts

  • 5-10% of athletes will experience a concussion in any given sport season.
  • Fewer than 10% of sport related concussions involve a loss of consciousness (e.g., blacking out, seeing stars, etc.)
  • Football is the most common sport with concussion risk for males (75% chance for concussion).
  • Impact speed of a football player tackling a stationary player is 25mph.
  • Soccer is the most common sport with concussion risk for females (50% chance for concussion).
  • Impact speed of a soccer ball being headed by a player is 70mph.
  • Headache (85%) and Dizziness (70-80%) are most commonly reported symptoms immediately following concussions for injured athletes.
  • High school athletes sustain an estimated 136,000 to 300,000 concussions per year.
  • Athletes ages 10 to 19 sustain 29% of all sports-related concussions.
  • A study published in the winter 2007-2008 Journal of Athletic Training suggested that girls were much more susceptible to concussions in sports like soccer and basketball than boys.

Concussions Can Lead to Suicide!

NeuroSport® Concussion Management has investigated the connection between concussions and suicide, a link that may be stronger than you expected. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 240,000 young players suffer concussions every year. Parents know their kids are at risk every time they step on the playing field. Shocking new studies have confirmed that several concussions over time can have devastating effects on a person’s health, and even lead to suicide. Concussions are a very common problem with athletes, particularly with football players. And many athletes who sustain concussions have complained of various problems afterwards, including depression and anxiety. And even if the player recovers fully from a concussion before returning to the play, the likelihood of sustaining a subsequent concussion is increased.

“Because concussions can cause clinical depression, concussions can also lead to suicide because untreated depression is the number one cause for suicide.”

– Fred Willis, Former NFL Player & President & CEO NeuroSport®

In those individuals who had been repeatedly concussed, it’s almost like they’re more sensitized… It becomes easier for that individual to experience depression and suicidal (thoughts) as a result. In the ongoing NeuroSport Clinical Trials with retired NFL Players around the country indicates that concussions can indeed cause a myriad of problems and conditions, including:

  • Biochemical disturbances
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Confusion
  • Memory problems
  • Anger
  • Frustration
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sensitivity to noise
  • Vision problems
  • Fatigue
  • Inability to think clearly

NeuroSport® Concussion Management knows now that as a result of multiple concussions, the brain becomes more vulnerable to more long-term kinds of brain injuries, which results in some of the depression we see in individuals.”

Step TRAZER® offers a 4-step complete solution to concussion management for athletes, seniors, military, and non-athletes alike.

The patented TRAZER® represents a novel, holistic and objective approach to concussion management as it mimics game play to challenge and assess visual, vestibular, cognitive, neuromuscular/ musculoskeletal and cardiorespiratory systems by gradually raising the heart rate to game levels.

  • A return-to-play TRAZER assessment is completed prior to the athlete’s release to play.

The Problem: Cognitive acuity is challenged by concussion.

The problem: The effects of concussion diminish your athlete’s ability to play.

The problem: As intensity of gameplay increases, concussion symptoms increase.

The problem: The most commonly used concussion baseline and return to play tests are administered while the athlete is seated at a computer or standing on the balance device. Tests have no resemblance to gameplay.

  • Baseline concussion assessment
  • Objective BESS TEST immediately following a concussion
  • Structured / staged return-to-play protocol
  • Return-to-play assessment prior to athlete’s release to play.

TRAZER’s® performance report elicits objective measurements of reaction time, speed, acceleration deceleration, max heart rate, average heart rate and distance traveled. These measurements are found during sport specific, athletic movements, designed to mimic situations found in any athletic contest.

Jumping, running, shuffling, elevation changes, jogging and backpedaling will athletically challenge any athlete and help to assess global capacities. Random cues force athletes to react in a sport specific manner. TRAZER HRA can measure each athlete’s prowess in multiple directions and multiple vectors. TRAZER HRA will assist medical professional in determining if an athlete is “Fit to Play.

Treatment Options for Post-Concussive Syndrome?

For unknown reasons, 5-10 percent of people who experience a concussion have symptoms that persist beyond six weeks. These people are diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome (PCS). Previously there has been no treatment for the condition with proven success. The most common approach by physicians is to recommend no exercise and prescribe antidepressants.

NeuroSport® High Performance Neurofeedback

NeuroSport® High-Performance Neurofeedback is a type of brainwave based biofeedback that has shown clinical efficacy in addressing the symptoms of TBI, PTSD, Post-Concussive Syndrome, Anxiety, Depression, and AD/HD.

Although it may seem contradictory, it can be calming, energizing and mood-lifting simultaneously. Head pain often dissipates quickly. Foggy thinking and confusion typically give way to clear thinking and a more even, more elevated, and less edgy, mood.

The client typically begins to notice the improvement with the first session, often before getting out of the chair. Sometimes this improvement is dramatic. At the completion of the set of training sessions, improvement is expected to continue on its own.

The system tracks the brainwaves, and sends directly back to the brain tiny, imperceptible, ultra-low power signals that result in changes toward a more highly functioning brainwave pattern. In this way, the brain seems to learn new patterns of behavior and become de-habituated from stuck patterns that represent sub-optimal processing, reorganizing itself naturally into a healthier and more flexible way of being.

As the brain learns to function in this more efficient manner, it becomes accustomed to this higher-functioning way of being, and the effects last longer and longer. It’s as though the brain recognizes the reflection of itself, in its own language, and makes the appropriate adjustments.

Sessions require no conscious effort on the part of the client. These effects are independent of age, comprehension, or physical or mental capacity. The practitioner will frequently notice immediate changes in the brainwave patterns, and the client often notices the shift that occurs during the session. Family and friends will likely begin noticing the shift in mood and behavior in the first 1-4 sessions, often on the ride home from the first session. Behavioral changes are frequently noticed first by family, then by the client.

The NeuroSport® NFL Clinical Trials

Single Blind Clinical Trial Studies with NeuroSport® High Performance Neurofeedback in Retired NFL Players

What are the Common TBI/CTE Symptoms?

TBI symptoms vary depending on the extent of the injury and the area of the brain affected. Some symptoms appear immediately; others may appear days, weeks and even years later. If you feel right now that your current condition has pulled you out of your life plan and something is not right and you are feeling stuck, depressed, anxious, angry, aggressive, impulsive, erratic, withdrawn, tired a lot, lost, unfocussed, having difficulty staying asleep, headaches, confusion, lightheadedness, dizziness, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, a bad taste in the mouth, behavior or mood changes, trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking, loss of consciousness lasting a few seconds to minutes, sensitivity to light or sound.

Repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), such as that experienced by Retired NFL Players, has been associated with the development of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Executive dysfunction is believed to be among the earliest symptoms of CTE, with these symptoms presenting in the fourth or fifth decade of life.

Executive function is a set of mental processes that helps you connect past experience with present action and you use it to perform activities such as planning, organizing, strategizing, paying attention to and remembering details, and managing time and space
