Should I Be Concerned About Impact Injury?
Impact Injuries Are On The Rise!
The intense culture in today’s world of athletic performance seems to be fueling an increase in sports-related injuries, including concussions. Did you know that athletes in football, hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, soccer and baseball sustain over 1000 sub-concussive blows per season?
A research study at Purdue University put sensors in the helmets of football players to measure the force of the hits they were taking.
The study found that players with no concussion symptoms often showed neurological impairments equal to or greater than their concussed teammates. Functional MRI scans were used to document the changes in neural activity.

1/10 of a Second Can Be The Difference Between Excellence And Injury!
Cranial impact, however minor, can produce long-term effects on our overall well being and athletic performance. Studies have shown that it can also lead to the progressive degenerative brain disease Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).
That’s why it is important to both create a concussion baseline and increase your reaction time, cognitive processing speed, visual acuity, peripheral vision, and multi-sensory perceptual awareness. All of these skills increase your field/court awareness and reduce the risk of sub-concussicce blows, concussion and other injuries. This is what our reACT Sports Training System is all about.
