Keys to Recovery in Persistent Post-concussion Syndrome
Includes a Live Event on 11/10/2020 at 1:00 PM (EST)
Join Dr. Michael Powell, DC, who will provide an overview of the evidence-based procedures he uses with patients who suffer persistent post-concussion syndrome (PPCS). These patients continue to suffer headache, dizziness, or other symptoms for months or years after their initial injury. Dr. Powell will provide a template for assessment that will enable the chiropractor to provide individualized care for these challenging patients. He will share treatment strategies that lead to faster, more successful outcomes for those with PPCS.
On completing this program, doctors will be able to:
1. Identify the key tests that must be performed with every PPCS patient
2. Assemble a plan of care that takes into account the unique challenges with PPCS
3. Utilize objective measures that will guide the treatment plan
