In Canada there are 465 new cases of concussion each day, one every three minutes. And the incidence of sport-related concussion in Canada is estimated at 33,000 per year, and rising. Over 60% of sport-related head injuries are diagnosed as concussion. Yet concussions are difficult to diagnose and symptoms will vary between children, teens and adults. Whether it’s people wanting to return to work and their daily routines, or athletes wanting to get back in the game, evidence reveals that concussion can lead to long-term consequences if not treated properly, including depression and cognitive impairment.
In addition to symptoms of concussion being difficult to diagnose, they are easily overlooked by coaches, teachers, parents and health professionals, however, proper management can prevent tragic and serious outcomes. In this webinar, Dr. Edward Gray, DC, RAc, CAFCI, provides information on the management of concussion and a treatment modality using acupuncture. Discussion includes a brief overview of the pathophysiology of concussion, incidence, symptoms, testing, and any special considerations.
You will learn:
- Pathophysiology of concussion
- Symptoms of concussion
- Concussion assessment tools
- Testing considerations
- General management
- Acupuncture protocol and method of action
