He went to prison, not to Princeton."

Fighting Concussions Head On

Publish Date: 4/30/2015

Fighting Concussions Head On

A concussion is an injury caused by a blow or jolt to the head that disrupts the function of the brain. It can cause irreparable damage to anyone – changing a life forever. Washington University now has a specialized clinic for evaluation and treatment of concussions.

Maurizio Corbetta, MD, Washington University neurologist says, “Signs that the function of the brain has been disrupted include loss of consciousness, gaps in memory, confusion or disorientation, problems with balance or coordination, headaches, and changes in vision or hearing, among others. Many people make a full recovery from concussions usually within seven days, but others do not.”

The Washington University Concussion Clinic offers a comprehensive evaluation for adults who have not fully recovered from a concussion; and for those who have had a concussion and have questions regarding returning to sports, work or school.\

Because time is of the essence, it is important to see a concussion specialist as soon as possible after the injury. The concussion clinic evaluation includes:
•Physical examination by one of our physicians
•Mild to moderate exercise with our physical therapists (to see if symptoms come on with exertion)
•Balance testing
•Cognition and memory testing by our neuropsychologists (on a case-by-case basis)

In order to prevent permanent brain damage, rest and proper treatment is vital for someone recovering from a concussion.

For more information or to make an appointment with the Washington University Concussion Clinic, please call (314) 362-4503. Patients are seen at the Center for Advanced Medicine, 4921 Parkview Place, 6th floor, Suite C.

UFC 217 results: Georges St-Pierre chokes out Michael Bisping to capture middleweight title



 

Georges St-Pierre choked Michael Bisping completely unconscious to win the middleweight title at UFC 217.


 The top of the UFC 217 billing saw longtime UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre make his long awaited return to action, after nearly four years on the sidelines, to choke Michael Bisping unconscious to win the UFC middleweight title.

GSP had a strong start to the fight, wobbling Bisping late in the opening round, but began to slow down a bit towards the end of the second. GSP would drop his foe in the third round with a blazing left hook, and proceeded to strangle the life out of the tough Brit.

Wow, just wow! St-Pierre is just the fourth two-division champion in UFC history, joining Randy Couture, B.J. Penn, and Conor McGregor on the list of fighters who’ve achieved this.
