Head trauma through direct and indirect impact, blast or falls is gaining wide attention in the medical, military, neurology, pediatric and sports literature. Research has shown a wide variety of physical, behavioral, and cognitive impairments resulting in temporary and permanent damage. The scientific literature is evolving as are new strategies and protocols in the evaluation and management of concussion patients. The presentation will include case studies to demonstrate the evaluation, treatment and outcome status of both cortical and labyrinthine patients.
