A concussion is a functional brain injury with complex and heterogeneous symptom presentation. It should be managed based on the individual presentation. Most concussions resolve on their own in about two weeks. International guidelines recommend an initial period of physical and cognitive rest (48 hours) to allow the individual’s symptoms time to resolve before initiating treatment. If symptoms persist more than a few days, then a referral for comprehensive evaluation and management is suggested, especially if symptoms persist greater than four to six weeks. In this course, you will learn how to apply various treatment approaches with which we can treat a concussion to address the unique cluster of symptoms experienced by an individual patient.

A very well designed and informative course for physiotherapists. This course threw light on the parts of the physio rehab which is not discussed as often as other rehabs
