The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.6-3.8 million sports- and recreation-related concussions occur each year in the U.S. Proper evaluation and treatment may lead to a more complete and timely recovery. This course will introduce evaluation and management of post-concussion symptoms using clinical subtypes. Anxiety/Mood, Cognitive, Ocular-motor, Post-traumatic migraine, and Vestibular subtypes will be discussed, along with the modifiers of Cervical and Sleep.
