Each year, over 50 million people suffer a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), a condition that is often not properly diagnosed or treated. The world has recently awakened to the reality of this condition and the significant disruption that it causes in our society.
Clinicians and patients can no longer wait for answers to fundamental questions regarding how to properly evaluate and treat concussions and traumatic brain injuries.
In Concussion, distinguished neurologist Dr. Kester Nedd, introduces the Brain Hierarchical Evaluation and Treatment (BHET) method, a new way of diagnosing and treating individuals. The BHET method highlights how order in the brain is impacted by injury and how the brain reacts during the recovery process. Through real patient stories, Dr. Nedd illustrates the life changing effects this condition has on our well-being and our ability to function in everyday life, while also offering solutions to the many questions that remain unresolved. This transformative work demonstrates how the brain as a highly organized structure is the most important processor in the universe, one that defines who we are and what others perceive us to be. Yet, as highly organized as it is, the human brain can be damaged or destroyed by external forces in an instant.
