Concussions have never been more monitored, discussed, and researched up to this point. It is crucial to quickly recognize the signs and symptoms involved with those who have sustained a concussion, the diagnostic procedures and examinations necessary to form a conclusion, risk factors, and the management and treatment needed for each unique case. Headaches, especially ones sustained traumatically, are not always considered a concussion, which is why baseline testing is qualitatively and quantitatively measured. The need for thorough understanding of return to play criteria is crucial for creating a safe environment for an athlete to get back in the game.
Initially taught individually at the prestigious Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Florida, “Sports Concussion and Associated Post-Traumatic Headache” offers a review of head injuries assessment and outlines pertinent history, examination and imaging required for effective diagnosis and treatment of concussions.
This course is a must watch for healthcare professionals seeking a comprehensive guide to concussion diagnosis and management.
