Sport-specific exertional activities have been the cornerstone to the concussion return to play protocol. Far too frequently, however, athletes are allowed to return to play without assessing their response to exertion. The Buffalo Concussion Treadmill Test (BCTT) is a safe and reliable test to monitor symptoms and physiological responses to graded exercise demands.
Webinar attendees will learn how the BCTT can be useful for the differential diagnosis of acute and chronic post-concussive symptoms and how it is used to establish individualized sub-threshold aerobic exercise treatment programs for patients with persistent post-concussive symptoms.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
