PABC Evening Lecture: Cervicogenic contributions to concussion with Carol Kennedy
Concussion? What about the neck? Cervicogenic contributions to concussion symptoms, with Carol Kennedy PT MSc
Concussion identification & management along with prevention has become very high profile in the past few years in many sports. Although the principles of concussion management are well established, there are still several gray areas that will undoubtedly become clearer as research continues.
As physiotherapists, many of us deal with patients with a diagnosis of concussion. We must be aware of the appropriate concussion protocol, as well as the step-wise progression of return to play and the careful monitoring of symptoms along the course of their return to activity and sport participation.
Although we cannot change the course of the actual brain injury of concussion and its healing time, we can assess and treat any other issues that may also be feeding into the symptom picture, particularly the cervical spine and vestibular system.
This talk will outline the evidence behind the potential contribution of the cervical spine in producing and maintaining concussion-type symptoms. The assessment and treatment of the neck, utilizing manual therapy and exercise, will be presented using a case history format.
