Host: John J. Russell, MD When was it decided that exercise could only be good for you? In his recent book, Exercise Will Hurt You: Concussion, Traumatic Brain Injury, and How the Dangers of Sports and Exercise Can Affect Your Health, leading neurosurgeon Dr. Steven Barrer calls for a change in the way we think about exercise in the United States. His work arises from an extensive career treating exercise-related injuries, anecdotal experiences from his own personal exercise injuries over the years, and scientific data culled from the latest research. Dr. Barrer is Director of the Neurosciences Institute and Chief of the Division of Neurosurgery at Abington Memorial Hospital in Philadelphia.
