Concussion Guidelines for Return-to-Play with Dr. Mike Olson, Part 2

Concussion management and post-concussion care is multifaceted and highly individualized. One person may have a fairly easy recovery and little long-term effects from a head injury whereas another person with an almost identical brain trauma can be permanently disabled.

The scientific community has made incredible advances in the last decade in our understanding of the short and long term effects of concussion, but there are still a number of mysteries when it comes to the physiological, neurological, mental and emotional inner workings of the human brain.But one thing is for certain -- athletic organizations at ALL levels have finally become acutely aware of the importance of protecting the brain.

In part 1 of this fascinating 2 part training, you'll learn from Dr. Mike Olson, a nationally and internationally certified chiropractic sports physician that heads up the concussion management program at BigFork Valley Hospital in Minnesota.

He will walk us through the internationally recognized return-to-sport guidelines and provide us with a step-by-step approach to managing concussion throughout every phase of the healing process.
