Dr. DeWitt provides an “in the trenches” perspective on concussions and what they can do over the course of a lifetime for anyone in almost any sport.
During his playing days, Dr. DeWitt personally experienced multiple concussions which he didn’t think much about. “Getting your bell rung” was part of the game. It wasn’t until the movie Concussion came out that he revisited these injuries and was inspired to write the book, Head Games: Concussions and CTE, Where Do We Go From Here?
