NYC Considers Bill Requiring Doctors at All Youth Football Games, Practices
WCBS=TV
The New York City Council has decided to tackle football safety. A new bill proposes putting doctors on the sidelines at youth games and practices to help prevent and treat concussions, CBS2's Sonia Rincon reported. The city's Public School Athletic League has already taken concussion prevention head-on, thanks to a grant from New York Giants chairman Steve Tisch that covers the cost of putting a doctor or athletic trainer at every single practice for the next season.

High Schools Seek a Safer Path Back From Concussion
NPR
Nearly half of all reported sports concussions occur during a high school football game or practice. And even when injured bodies are ready to get back on the field, injured brains might not be ready to return to class. But how long should these student athletes be out of school? A day? A week? A month? The latest research supports the idea of a gradual return to class and other activities, in a flexible program that's tailored to each student's injury and recovery from symptoms.

New Blood Test Could Indicate Long-Term Severity of Concussions
Newsworks
Over the past 15 years, scientists and physicians have come to realize that concussions are very serious injuries. In fact, about 20 percent of people who suffer a concussion go on to have long term cognitive impairment. Considering there are at least two million concussions per year in the U.S., 20 percent means 400,000 people — that's a lot of brain damage.

Therapeutic Elastic Taping — What Is It and Does It Work?
Wahpeton Daily News
Therapeutic elastic tape is often referred to by the brand name Kinesio Tape, but much like Kleenex there are multiple different companies making similar products and all work in a similar manner. For ease of this article, I will focus on the brand Kinesio and the theory behind it. Kinesio tape was developed in the late 1970s by a Japanese chiropractor name Kenzo Kase and was originally developed to mimic a therapeutic touch and restore normal fluid flow beneath the surface of the skin.

Pros Turn to 'Posture Shirt' to Improve Performance
USA Today
NBA star Dwight Howard has worn one, and so has Peyton Manning. Major League pitchers have worn them. NBA player Eric Gordon of the New Orleans Pelicans was wearing one when he returned from a 21-game layoff with a torn labrum. It's a "Posture Shirt," made by a company called Alignmed, and its job is to help keep the wearer's shoulders properly positioned, a key to reducing fatigue.

Concussion Crisis a Big Blow to Football
Times Herald-Record
Eric Hipsman remembers the swing pass floating in the air, slightly out of reach. He remembers stretching out for the ball with a safety closing in on a sprint. The charging defender launched himself helmet-first toward Hipsman. That is the last thing Hipsman, Monticello High's varsity football coach, remembers "until I woke up. That was it." Hipsman was a running back for Hartwick College that day in fall 2003. The hit resulted in his "12th or 13th concussion" playing football.
