Top experts to share latest clinical and technological breakthroughs in concussion management supported by vigorous research

Allowing a hands-on approach as part of the Summit will take thoughts and information shared and turn them into actionable patient care trajectories.

360 Neuro Health will host The Concussion Health Summit in Southlake, Texas, at the Hilton Dallas/Southlake Town Square Friday, July 27-Sunday, July 29, 2018.

This three day long program will encourage education and discussion – bringing together an influential array of experts, practitioners, and innovators from a range of specialties who will discuss the latest knowledge and technology regarding concussion management. By emphasizing the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach, the Summit aims to make the connection between prevention, baseline testing, time of injury, post-injury exam and the recovery process. The Program Planning Committee has assembled a faculty of renowned clinical experts to provide opportunities for approved continuing education sessions. The Concussion Health Summit will also provide opportunities to network through social events and case-study round table discussions where each group will work together to determine best practice concussion management guidelines.

“Hearing from the diverse panel of experts assembled will afford attendees an opportunity to expand their knowledge and skill base in caring for concussion patients,” said Mark A. Letendre, ATC, Co-Chair of The Concussion Health Summit and Director of Umpire Medical Services for Major League Baseball. “Allowing a hands-on approach as part of the Summit will take thoughts and information shared and turn them into actionable patient care trajectories.”

The Summit will be highlighted by Dr. James Sterling who will serve as Keynote Speaker on Friday, July 27th. A board-certified sports medicine and conservative spine specialist, Dr. Sterling uses a holistic approach to alleviate musculoskeletal problems and return patients to daily routines and recreational activities. Dr. Peter Cummings, Keynote Speaker on Saturday, July 28th, studies brain trauma for a living as a forensic pathologist and a neuropathologist.

Other highlights include but are not limited to:

  • Program Overview – Whether you are brand new to concussion or established and ready to grow, the Summit will challenge you to execute at your highest level. It’s designed to present the success factors critical to a comprehensive concussion program and utilize this information for performance enhancement, concussion reduction and post-data comparison if a concussion or even an orthopedic injury should occur.
  • Rehab/Progression Hands-On Workshops – These 30-minute hands-on workshops mimic clinical settings, providing interactive experiences with experts and attendees. Topics include: Cervicogenic Dysfunction Post-Concussion; Visual Evaluation Techniques and Functional Retraining; COBALT - Concussion Balance Testing; Vestibular Evaluation and Treatment Techniques.
  • Cutting-Edge Topics - Implementation of a Comprehensive Concussion Management Program; Adolescent Predisposition for Concussion & Recovery; Psychological Overlay in Concussion Care & Recovery; Sleep Disturbances and Head Trauma; The Problem with Football: Fact versus Fear; What is appropriate return to “play” for the brain? Academic Modifications and Return to Learn after Concussion; Advanced Techniques in Concussion Identification and Remediation; Concussion Care: a Chiropractor's Perspective; Principles and Considerations to Become a Concussion Spotter; Implications of Playing after the Injury & Concussion Prevention; Interdisciplinary treatment of concussion: From the physician office to the therapy clinic.
  • Continuing Education Credits - The Concussion Health Summit has been approved for 14 EBP Category hours/CEUs for Athletic Trainers and 14 continuing education credit hours for Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists.

“Traumatic brain injury (TBI) has received notable attention in the literature over many years with a consensus that each individual presents uniquely and recovery requires an intra-disciplinary and customized approach,” said Bridgett Wallace, PT, DPT and Co-Chair of The Concussion Health Summit. “Yet, such ideas towards concussion (a type of TBI) has lagged in both research and clinical application. It is extremely exciting and promising to see experts from a variety of medical specialties sharing their knowledge on the evolving field of concussion management, especially the evolution of concussion as a treatable injury.”
