Why are you more likely to get a concussion after you already get one? Do you see Andre Smiths foot being healed by training camp?

It is not known if brain trauma ever fully heals on the microscopic level, and that is the reason for recurrance, or if the predisposition to concussion is the reason. Post Concussion Syndrome is the subject of much debate because of the difficulty in quantifying the scope of the injury. Even psychological factors, such as depression, can effect the presentatipn of symptoms such as irritability or forgetfullness. Some research is being done with PET scans, but there are no definitve answers as of yet.
