When Buffalo Sabres center Tim Connolly took the ice for the start of the NHL playoffs in April after being sidelined for 11 months with post-concussion syndrome, his return in large part was due to a new treatment program developed by University at Buffalo researchers.
For unknown reasons, 5 to 10 percent of people who experience a concussion have symptoms that persist beyond six weeks. These people are diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome. Previously, there has been no treatment for the condition with proven success.
“The new program is in the experimental stages, but I think it’s going to change the way (post-concussion syndrome) is handled,” Connolly said.
