Concussion – Assessment, Management and Treatment
Sunday, February 28, 2021

Our seventh Education Module will focus on Concussion – the assessment, management and treatment from a sideline to return to life standpoint. I say “return to life” because, although we focus on return to sport, there are many other aspects of our patient’s lives that will influence their return to sport and we, as their treating practitioner, can help guide them.

Our day will start off with Dr. Mohsen Kazemi, who’s vast experience in the world of Tae Kwon Do, will inform his talk on event coverage and acute concussion assessment and management. Dr. Kazemi will walk us through his sideline management coverage strategy and his approach to detection, assessing for red flags, administering the SCAT 5 and other on-field tips.

A panel discussion will ensue with the other 3 practitioners that includes Dr. Cameron Marshall, Dr. Scott Howitt and Dr. Brad Muir who will also moderate the discussion. The panel will be presented with a concussion case and will walk through the return to life strategies once that acute patient presents to our office including: initial patient instructions, red flags, return to learn/school/work/driving and return to sport.

Following the panel discussion, Dr. Cam Marshall will present on the pathophysiology of persistent concussion symptoms. Dr. Marshall is the president and CEO of Complete Concussion Management and has extensive experience in assessing and managing patients with concussion. Dr. Marshall will walk us through some of the latest research and patient education strategies that are key to a smooth return to life for our patients.

Dr. Scott Howitt will continue the module with an update on the nutritional and exercise management of patients. Exercise and especially nutrition are emerging and rapidly changing areas in the management of concussion and Dr. Howitt will cover the latest studies and evolving trends.

Finally, the day will finish with myself, Dr. Brad Muir. My topic will focus on the assessment of the kinetic chain and concussion for patients. In particular, assessing patients for a structural leg length inequality and how an inequality may lead to persistent concussion symptoms as it relates to the interaction of the vestibular and ocular systems and cervical spine.
