From the back cover:
DID YOU KNOW?
You do not need to be knocked unconscious to have a concussion. The degree of brain injury is NOT related to the severity of the accident. A first concussion increases risk of a second concussion by 150%. A second concussion increases risk of a third concussion by 300%. The concussions you may not be aware of can be damaging your brain. Effects of brain injury cascade down through our brain over years and can show up decades later. Much of our fatigue, anxiety, brain fog, depression, sleep problems, and neurodegeneration can result from untreated past concussions.
AFTER A CONCUSSION, A NUMBER OF THINGS CAN HAPPEN:
The injured brain flares with a wildfire of neuroinflammation. This fire often causes more damage than the initial injury. The immune system goes into an autoimmune crisis triggering attack on body and brain tissues. You may suffer a whiplash injury to your neck and back. Your brain may be suffering and declining – even if you aren't aware of it.
