The Blacksburg Recreation Center
becomes the ONLY Not-for-Profit organization to Start A Concussion Mitigation Program in the USA.
Being Properly Prepared for Competitive Sports should not be dependent on the income level of the family of the athlete participating in Sports. Blacksburg Recreation has addressed that obstacle in a very proactive manner. Jack Leahy, supervisor of the recreation center, was instrumental in his efforts to bring The Only Standardized Resistance Program to Train the Head, Neck and upper back that has proven to mitigate concussions and spinal cord injuries, to the Blacksburg Recreation Center.
Strengthening the head, neck and surrounding cervical structures is the ONLY organic contingency within our control to prepare individuals to withstand potentially injurious forces.
The most important goal of the strength and conditioning professional is toPRUDENTLY PREPARE the individuals for the rigors of the task. As such, given the catastrophic consequences of a cervical spine and traumatic brain injury, the strengthening of the head, neck and surrounding muscular structures of the cervical spine MUST be considered PRIORITY ONE in the prescription and design of exercise.
