In December 2018, Dr. Ted Arkfeld’s clinic became only the second chiropractic office in the nation to achieve certification in the diagnosis and management of concussions and post-concussion syndrome through Complete Concussion Management, a network of trained multidisciplinary healthcare practitioners that collaborate with physicians to co-manage concussion injuries, helping patients and athletes safely return to learn, work, and play. In this exciting and informative course, Dr. Arkfeld will cover the basics of diagnosing and the treatment of concussion and post-concussion syndrome. He will cover the epidemiology of concussion and the mechanisms of trauma, followed by an in-depth discussion on history taking, examination procedures, ICD-10 codes, CPT codes, and how chiropractic care is the only answer for these conditions.
Upon completion of this seminar, participants will:
- Understand the mechanism of injury to sustain a concussion
- Understand when a concussion ends and post-concussion syndrome begins
- Understand how to correctly utilize low force chiropractic manipulations to make changes to the patient’s brains
- Appreciate the importance of early active rehabilitation in the treatment of both concussion and post-concussion syndrome
- Implement cutting edge therapies into the management of these conditions
