The Denver Post—June 17, 2016

The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala published a recent series about the experience of former Bronco Jeb Putzier who is living with and receiving treatment for persistent concussion symptoms (PCS).

Erin E. Manning, MD, a neurologist at Hospital for Special Surgery, explains that "What differentiates (PCS) is that it doesn't progress. It doesn't continually get worse. It can just stay at a level or gradually improve over time."

Dr. Manning also mentions that PCS has the potential to be lifelong, but the effects can often be minimized with therapies.
