Proactive Concussion Management
There are nearly 4M sports-related concussions in the US every year.
Research tells us that increased neck strength reduces concussion risk.
An Overlooked Piece of the Puzzle
For every one pound increase in neck strength, odds of concussion decrease 5%.
You are as weak as your weakest link. Make sure neck strength isn't your weak link.
An Answer to Rotational Forces
Whiplash and accelerating rotational forces are overlooked aspects of concussions.
Your neck isn’t confined to linear directions of movement. Your neck training protocol shouldn’t be either.
The New Helmet Test
The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) is implementing a new standard that goes into effect November 2018.
The old helmet test only measured the linear force experienced by the head, but the new test incorporates a "neck" that allows the head in the test to twist and move in all directions.
Youth & Female Athletes
Leading neurologists point to weaker necks as a reason youth and female athletes suffer the highest concussion rates.
Female concussion rates are nearly double their male counterparts, when comparing the same sport.
