lifebridge_health_conferenceNew concern over traumatic brain injuries, particularly concussions, has led to the formation of two new conferences to be held October 24 and 25 dealing with the treatment of mild TBIs. These conferences will be held at the Sinai Rehabilitation Center in Baltimore and will involve professionals from all over the nation.

Two Conferences Focus on Concussion Identification and Treatment

The first conference will be held at the Sinai Rehabilitation Center and will be entitled “The Evolving Landscape in Treatment of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: New Evidence in Concussion Management.” The conference will focus attention on new discoveries about mild TBIs including the complexities of diagnosis and treatment and the linking of the science behind concussions with the practice of clinical medicine.

The second conference is being held by the Comprehensive Sports Concussion Program at their third annual conference, titled “Bridging the Gap: Return to Learn.” Focused on methods of detecting concussions, particularly in school sports, the conference will also include discussions of how to return those who suffer concussions back to their former cognitive ability in the shortest time possible.

The scope of these conferences is broad enough to be of interest to a wide variety of people in various fields. The audience will include physicians, psychologists, therapists, pediatricians, social workers, teachers and trainers. The aim is to get information about new practices in handling concussion injuries to the people who are involved on the frontlines of identifying and treating TBIs.

Concussions Are More Serious Than Previously Thought

New research has shown that concussions can be far more serious than previously thought and can have long-term repercussions. The more that scientists discover about the human brain, the more obvious it becomes that more can be done to help those suffering concussions. A concussion can cause serious damage, even if it is classified as a “minor brain injury.” It is hoped that conferences such as these two will be able to spread new knowledge on handling concussions so that those who treat these injuries will have better options.
