Do You Realize How Important It Is To Build A Team To Support Your Concussion?
Post-concussion syndrome is a complex disorder in which various symptoms — such as headaches and dizziness — last for weeks and sometimes months after the injury that caused the concussion.
A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that usually happens after a blow to the head. It can also occur with violent shaking and movement of the head or body. You don't have to lose consciousness to get a concussion or post-concussion syndrome. In fact, the risk of post-concussion syndrome doesn't appear to be associated with the severity of the initial injury.
Did you know that 1 in 5 teens report a history of concussion (JAMA, Sept 2017)?
This alarming statistic becomes even more bothersome when you begin to think about the side effects of a concussion…
-Loss of concentration and memory
-Ringing in the ears
-Noise and light sensitivity
Yet, the prevention and management of concussions are complex, requiring cooperation and communication amongst parents and professionals from many disciplines.
This is our motivation to host a webinar called Concussion Care - Sideline to Sideline that will take place on Wednesday, August 7th at 7:00 pm EDT.
Our webinar will focus on non-invasive, research-supported therapies for concussions because we believe that the key to creating a recovery path for a multifactorial injury, such as a concussion, is to properly identify the underlying cause of the injury and then to create an individualized course of treatment.
What to Expect
We will be exploring some common misconceptions when it comes to concussion care as well as delving into some individualized treatment options that we offer at our clinic.
Concussion/mTBI is a brain injury that changes the way the brain functions. Most of the time, structural damage does not occur, therefore, imaging of the brain like MRI and CT brain scans are usually normal, but symptoms like headaches, head pressure, confusion, fogginess, dizziness, nausea, delayed responses to questions, and memory-loss typically occur. No two head traumas are exactly the same, and due to the shape of the human skull, there is always a rotational aspect to head traumas that causes the brain to twist and damage the central or inner parts of the brain, leading to the symptoms listed above. Concussions do not always result in loss of consciousness, which is a common mistake when diagnosing.
During our time together, we will focus on the following topics:
-Tenets of a Concussion
-Proper Acute Management
-When To Call 911
-Special Diagnostic Tools
-Example of a Comprehensive Concussion Plan
-And so much more!
The key is a multidisciplinary approach to recovery that includes a variety of techniques and services and our office is focused 100% on supporting people who are in dire need of recovery.
Please join us and feel free to invite others who you think could benefit from our webinar, Concussion Care - Sideline to Sideline.
