It's no secret to my family, my patients, or fellow Eagles fans, that I'm a huge football fan. I'm also a neurosurgeon with a special interest in concussions and football injuries. That's why I'm pleased to be a regular guest on WBCB's Pro Football Report with Merrill Reese.
It provides an opportunity to reach a large audience of Eagles fans like me and give medical insights into what football injury reports actually mean as well as to discuss high school sports.
In this recent interview with Merril he asked me "What We Can Do to Prevent Concussions?" Unfortunately, the answer is that we really can't do very much at all. In this short clip from the Eagles Football Report, I explain why. Listen to the podcast below.
Merrill Reese - Dr. Shah is there any way that any young athlete can actually prevent head trauma?
Dr. Shah - The truth of the matter is you can not strengthen the brain. The brain is what it is it is an organ it is not a muscle. The main thing is being smart, with the way you act, or the way you play sports, and the way you live your life. That is the best way to prepare for a brain trauma.
