Specifically covered in this course are: the mechanism of injury and pathophysiology, symptoms and diagnostic considerations, common evaluation tools used on the sidelines and throughout the recovery period, a review of the pharmacology typically used in the management of youth concussions, considerations for classroom participation following injury, an evidenced based return to play program, and rehabilitation considerations for post-concussion syndrome.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------***COURSE OBJECTIVES***At the completion of this course, the therapist will: 1.
