Thu, May 4, 2017, 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
Dr. Scott Bender D.C., B.C.A.O.
A Concussion, also known as a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) is a very common incident in the United States accounting for 80% of all traumatic brain injuries per year. Over 3.8 million injuries per year occur from sports injury alone. Other leading causes of TBI include car accidents, falls, and assault. The vast majority of individuals with a single concussion recover within days to weeks, however some individuals develop long term problems collectively known as Post-Concussion Syndrome. Recent evidence shows that recovery is prolonged in the adolescent population. Dr. Bender of Connecticut Spine & Health Center in Stamford will present current research in the diagnosis and the successful treatment of Cranio-Cervical injuries which contribute to Post-concussion Syndrome. Symptoms include: Headaches, Brain Fog, Sleep Disruption, and Dizziness. Strategies to help heal from these symptoms will be presented. This lecture is free and open to the public. Space is limited.
