When parents have a son or daughter involved in school athletics, there’s always a concern their child could become injured. A delicate balance exists between a potential injury and a youngster’s desire and talent to play. This program is about healing a concussion, if one should occur.
Concussions and Post-Concussion Syndrome remain primary concerns among potential sports injuries. In the light of media attention and a recent major motion picture on the subject as it applied to professional sports, how much should young athletes and their parents be concerned?
Our guest on this program, Dr. Joanny Liu, will emphasis to us that concussions are temporary and can be healed completely and effectively if we know what to do about them. In addition to addressing three major myths about concussions, Dr. Joanny will explain the most common symptoms of a concussion and a process for treating it effectively, a process she notes as being based on new and impressive research in the neurosciences, findings that fit perfectly with principles of Classical Chinese medicine. The goal, of course, is to restore a young athlete to complete health and get them back in the game.

Her expertise on clinically proven views regarding the diagnosis and treatment of concussions and Post-Concussion Syndrome has been featured on such US and Canadian news outlets as Fox, NBC, CTV, Global TV, ABC, CBS, The Boston Globe and the Miami Herald.
