It's All in Your Head: Everyone's Guide to Managing Concussions Author, Doctor Ann Engelland, to help sponsor Concussion Symposium in Texas
Date:2/7/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 07, 2013

Concussion Compliance presents “Bridging the Gap on Best-Practices in Concussion Management.” This day-long exchange, held on March 2, 2013 at the Norris Conference Center in Austin, Texas is sponsored by St. David's HealthCare and brings together leading medical experts and practitioners to discuss the issues dominating today’s best-practice concussion management.

The symposium program provides an overview of the current best practices and consensus statements on concussion management, the latest scientific research, an update on tools available to practitioners, and perspectives from experts in concussion management.

“It’s natural that I would want to co-sponsor this important event,” said Doctor Engelland whose book, It’s All in Your Head: Everyone’s Guide to Managing Concussions, is based on the idea of the Four Rs: Recognize, Respond, Rest and Reasses as a tool for handling head injury and concussion. The book also reaches the same broad audience of the symposium; families, athletes, athletic trainers, school nurses, healthcare practitioners with an interest in sports medicine and concussion management.

Concussion Compliance, a community outreach project by Concussion Health, offers school superintendents, coaches, athletic trainers, primary care physicians, and parents a free online resource to increase the safety and care of student athletes while complying with state concussion laws.

St. David’s HealthCare is the presenting sponsor of the national symposium. Besides Doctor Engelland whose book will be promoted at the event, other sponsors include ReBuild Products, Natus Medical, Balance and Mobility, Balance Engineering, Concussion Health, Wells Fargo Insurance’s Play It Safe Concussion Care, 360 Balance, CORE Health Care, Texas Brain Injury Alliance, Stars in Your Eyes, Neuro Resource Group, NeuroImpact, Biodex Medical Systems, and Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas.

“It’s useful to remember,” reminds Doctor Engelland, “that in spite of the press surrounding football and concussions, not all head injuries have a connection to sports.” In fact, she notes, that in much of her clinical practice with teens and young adults, about half the injuries occur off the field or court. The book addresses not only the athletic impact of injury but also the cognitive and academic consequences which can be much longer lasting than the purely physical ones.
