Concussion care gets defense visit

29 Apr 2011 | Sgt. Rachael K. A. Moore

The Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Wounded Warrior Care and Transition Policy, and other medical advisors visited the Concussion Restoration Care Center aboard Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan, April 29, 2011.

Dr. Johnathon Woodson, a brigadier general in the Army reserve, and an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran, and John R. Campbell, who served in the Marine Corps and received two purple hearts in Vietnam, came to see what the treatment facility has to offer.

In the past eight months, the CRCC had 2,454 concussion-related visits, 2,208 musculoskeletal-related visits, and 348 mental health evaluations.  Only 26 patients were medically evacuated back to the states for treatment; the rest returned to a full-duty status after treatment at the CRCC.

During the visit, the distinguished visitors talked to the doctors about combat stress treatment, concussion care and musculoskeletal injuries, and ways to improve training to help prevent such cases.
