Cmdr. Keith Stuessi, a family physician with the Concussion Restoration Care Center, examines Sgt. Gorge Segura, artilleryman with India Battery, 1st Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment, at Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan, Aug. 26. Segura, 25, from San Angelo, Texas, suffered a grade-two concussion when a 100-pound roadside bomb exploded 30 meters away from him during a foot patrol in the Kajaki region of northern Helmand Province. The newly-opened concussion center opened Monday and was developed to aid in the treatment of service members who suffer from concussions, the number-one battle injury. The clinic is a first-of-its-kind facility in Helmand Province that was developed to aid in the treatment of concussions as well as musculo-skeletal injuries commonly caused by improvised explosive device blasts.
