The Hidden Toll of Concussions

The cover story on this months Sports Illustrated magazine highlights the often forgotten stories of wives and girlfriends who care for retired NFL players who suffer from the long-term effects of head injuries and concussions which occurred during their sports careers.

Staff of Pinnacle Brain and Spine Center, via the Watson Research foundation are proud to be helping prevent such injuries to our high school athletes by providing ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) concussion testing for five area high schools: Citronelle High School, Leflore High School, Alma Bryant High School, B C Rain High School, and Mattie T. Blount High School. 

Watson Research Foundation is also the concussion consultant for UMS-Wright Preparatory School. This is the fourth year Watson has provided concussion testing to local schools and their aspiring young athletes. 

On-field concussion testing is vital to keeping student athletes safe by preventing long-term damage.
