Integration of Post-Concussion Support Strategies into chiropractic practice
This is a clinically orientated paper which explores an evidence-based rationale for the inclusion of concussion screening protocols and clinical support of the concussion patient in a general chiropractic practice. It includes topics such as: definitions of concussion, concussion screening, clinical assessment, development of an interdisciplinary referral protocol and network, a description of some in-office clinical treatment and support strategies and a discussion of how to enhance patient and community awareness of the illness burden of undetected post concussion syndrome. This document is not a clinical training or certification document or manual; it is recommended that chiropractors wishing to implement the strategies in this paper undergo clinical training in basic concussion diagnostic and treatment protocols.
