Chiropractic Management of Concussion
Most concussions occur when the head is whiplash into an immovable object. What percentage of concussion is therefore associated with neck injury? Can neck injury cause proprioceptive changes that confuse the clinical picture of concussion? Chiropractors have always treated headaches associated with cervical dysfunction. So how do we differentiate the difference between symptoms of concussion from cervical spine whiplash? This lecture will discuss the procedures to help us make that call and discuss the vital roll Chiropractic Physicians play on the sports medicine team in regards to concussion management.

He has worked with the 2002 Winter Olympics and the PRCA Wilderness Rodeo Circuit. Dr. Nelson has published in the field of manipulation under joint anesthesia and has been associated in two different hospital systems performing those procedures. He is currently the director for the BIOFREEZE Sports and Rehabilitation Center at Logan College of Chiropractic.
