How Regenerative Medicine Treated Hockey Player's Concussion
Research shows repeated concussions can lead to permanent brain damage if left untreated. The science we know today wasn’t so understood back in 2007 when Philadelphia Flyers player, Simon Gagné, was sidelined by multiple concussions in a single season. The incidents left Gagné with severe headaches and uncertainty as to whether he would ever play professional hockey again. Thankfully, Dr. Scott Greenberg, a pioneer of regenerative medicine, knew his specialized treatment and medical expertise could give Gagné the best chance of getting back on the ice. In this video, SportsNet reports how Dr. Greenberg’s approach was a game-changer for concussion treatment.
Today, Dr. Greenberg helps many patients at his practice, Greenberg Regenerative Medicine, in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Explore your regenerative and integrative medicine options by calling 833-593-3018. You can also learn more on his website: http://bit.ly/GreenbergRegen.
