Captain Amy Streeter, Physiotherapist
This presentation will discuss the management and rehabilitation of patients with mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBI). The 2017 Concussion in Sport Group Consensus Statement states that treatment of individuals with post-concussion symptoms should be individualized and target specific medical, physical and psychosocial factors that are identified on assessment. This includes a targeted physiotherapy program. Pulling together the latest research on the management of this population, we will examine who would be appropriate for referral to physiotherapy and what you can expect from an assessment and treatment plan within the context of a case.
At the conclusion of this session, the participant will be able to:
1. Have a general understanding of the most recent guidelines for management of patient post- concussion;
2. Know when it is appropriate to refer patients to physiotherapy; and
3. Have an overall picture of what to expect from the rehabilitation team.
