TORONTO, ON – September 27, 2023, Lifemark Health Group hosted a webinar in honour of Rowan’s Law Day, on how to identify concussion injuries, myths around management, and steps to return to learning, work, or home related activities.
The panel included Lifemark’s very own knowledgeable registered physiotherapists Janine Ankenmann and Cregg Webber, who explored the common symptoms of a concussion, tools for recovery, and steps for return to activity post injury.
Attendees found the webinar informative and helpful as the Lifemark physiotherapists discussed how to identify whether a concussion has taken place, what symptoms to watch out for, and when to seek immediate care from a health or medical professional. They also examined common myths about management, including the amount of rest required post-injury. The speakers highlighted the importance of early assessment as a predictor of good outcomes as no two concussion injuries are alike. Individualized treatment, along with education and a gradual increase in activity promote a safe recovery.
“We were very pleased to share our knowledge in post-concussion management, helping people understand the importance of early assessments as a predictor of positive health outcomes, and providing tools and steps towards a safe return to activity,” said registered physiotherapist and Clinic Director, Cregg Webber.
