Product Description

In the year 2000, Shireen Jeejeebhoy was in a car crash. She emerged still walking and talking, but the person she had been was forever gone. Although no one knew it at the time, she had sustained a concussion. The repercussions of that injury have shaped her life ever since.

Many believe a concussion is a mild injury, when in truth it is a traumatic brain injury in which the brain bangs about inside the skull. If not identified or treated within the first 48 hours, the injury can lead to secondary symptoms (euphemistically named post-concussive syndrome) that require years of rehabilitation.

Traditional rehabilitation, involving cognitive therapy and rest, were ineffective. In addition to lost neurons, she was quickly losing her social connections and relationships. The concussion was threatening to cut her off from the world.

She wanted this hidden injury healed; she wanted the plethora of problems from it, especially the cognitive ones, treated. She wanted to return to society. And so began her long quest to find better treatment. In Concussion Is Brain Injury, Revised Edition, Jeejeebhoy shares this journey and her discoveries to give hope to those who have suffered from concussions and the people who care for them.
