Course Description

From Evidence in Motion, “The Concussion Management course is best summarized by a recent participant: “From never having treated a patient post-concussion, I felt like I had a solid understanding of what a concussion is and what it isn’t, as well as what the emerging technologies/treatment philosophies are in order to feel confident going into concussion evaluation in the future. I learned more than I expected to and walked away feeling more confident than I expected. The instructors approached the weekend with excitement and openness and created an environment where thoughtful discussion took place. There was extensive lab time to actually practice skills with helpful critiques from instructors and participants alike. I work in an outpatient ortho clinic and can utilize these concepts immediately with patients who have sports related concussions as well as non-athletes post-MVA/falls.”

This course is designed for anyone who desires to improve their concussion management skills. A temporal approach is taken to the course, where we focus on pre-injury baseline testing, followed by acute sideline evaluation of a concussion. This is progressed to management of a concussion in the first 48-hours, and eventually the physical therapy office. Day 2 of the lab intensive focuses on various concussion trajectories their associated treatment paths. The lab finishes with return-to-sport, return-to-work, and return-to-learn discussions.”
