Introduction to Concussion Evaluation and Treatment 

Course Description: A concussion is a neurometabolic pathology occurring from either a direct or indirect blow to the head. In recent times much attention has been given towards concussion, specifically concussion identification, diagnosis, and prevention. Despite these efforts, it is estimated that nearly four million sports-related concussions occur annually and even more occurring in other non-sports related arenas such as from motor vehicle collisions, assaults, and falls. This course is specifically designed to introduce the concepts of concussion management to the physical therapist. Concepts covered in this course include but are not limited to: concussion pathology, trends in concussion management, return-to-play decision making, return-to-learn concepts, and concussion examination.
