Concussion rehabilitation is perhaps the most emergent science in rehabilitative medicine. We recognize a concussion and understand the physiology of injury and of recovery better now than we did just 5 years ago. When the goal is to return to the athletic field, concussion rehabilitation is complicated by the myths, the motivations (athlete, coaches, parents), and the unique notion of returning a patient back to a potentially threatening environment requiring a very high level of skill to be safe, much less to perform. In this webinar, we will use evidence in concussion rehabilitation to tackle these complications in an effort to help clinicians navigate the recovery protocol and decision-making processes toward an optimal outcome and timely return. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.
