COST: $ 29.99 - EXPIRATION DATE: 2021-12-31
Concussions are one of the most challenging injuries facing Sports Medicine professionals today. It is estimated that over 650 sports related concussions (SRC's) are reported in high school athletes on a daily basis. There has been a lot of emphasis on concussion identification but the science behind concussion rehabilitation has lagged behind. This presentation will focus on best practices for exertional and physical rehabilitation and subsequent progression to return to play.
1. Review the latest evidence based recommendations on post-concussion rest and exercise
2. Discuss two exertional approaches to aid in concussion recovery for adolescent athletes
a. Buffalo Concussion Treadmill Test
b. University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Guidelines for Post-Concussion Rehabilitation
3. Identify the management process for each subsequent protocol
4. Provide examples of how these can be implemented in the Athletic Training Room
