PERSISTENT Post-Concussion Syndrome
In the past, concussions were mainly confined to sports fields and arenas. Today we are seeing them as a common occurrence from non-sporting events, falls or motor vehicle collisions.
While protocols are fairly well established for acute concussions, managing the persistent signs and symptoms post concussion is still complex and hard to treat. As there are many variables to control, we really have to sift through some common denominators of headache and fatigue. The symptom overlap, mechanism of injury and pre-existing conditions make it more complicated – leading to struggles in day to day life.
Come and learn from the team of experts and clients themselves to enhance your knowledge of managing PERSISTENT Post-Concussion Syndrome.
