Lifebridge Conference on TBI

Lifebridge Health recently announced that The Sinai Rehabilitation Center and the Comprehensive Sports Concussion Program at the Sandra and Malcolm Berman Brain and Spine Institute will be hosting their annual fall conference. The conference will focus on mild traumatic brain injuries and concussions and the series will be called “The Evolving landscape in Treatment of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: New Evidence in Concussion Management.”

Beginning on October 24, the event will feature talks by Kevin Crutchfield, MD. He is director of the Comprehensive Sports Concussion Program at Lifebridge Health. Martha S. Burns, P.H.D., CCC-SLP is also highlighting the program and is from Northwestern University. Crutchfield will talk about “Concussions: Complex Diagnosis, Effective Treatment and Related Controversies” and the topic that Burns will be focusing on is “Linking Neuroscience to Clinical Practise.”

Burns’ discussion will run for three sessions.

The second day of the event will feature the Comprehensive Sports Concussion Program’s annual conference. It is the third conference run by the program and is entitled “Bridging the Gap: Return to Learn.” These presentations are designed to provide current information about recognizing the signs of concussion. They will also discuss the etiology of concussion deficits, how to react and effectively manage a concussion and include a section on returning athletes to their former cognitive abilities after a concussion.

The speakers will focus on a wide spectrum of cognitive injuries ranging from acute concussions to accidents in school or the workplace. Discussions will include “Concussions and the Public School System,” “Update on the Chemistry of Concussion” and “Acute Evaluation on the Sideline.”

This promises to be an interesting look into the world of concussions and how they are understood in the present day. Both conferences run from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and will take place at the Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Md.

Those who suffer a concussion as the result of an accident or playing sports may suffer from memory loss or feel dizzy at intervals. They may experience symptoms for many months after the initial injury, and symptoms may not appear immediately.

When you have been injured in an accident and suffered brain trauma as a result, it is very important that you protect your rights and collect the money to pay for your medical bills and other expenses. Contact Barber and Associates, LLC in Anchorage to learn more about how to collect these payments from the person responsible for your accident.
