PAFA & NovaCare Concussion Seminar

Throughout the United States, it is estimated that more than two million concussions occur each year. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that is caused by either a direct force/blow to the head or a force transmitted through the body to the head. Concussions can be caused by falls or any other situation where the head receives a sudden jolt. A majority of concussions are sports related. 

NovaCare Rehabilitation and the Palatine Amateur Football Association want to help your kids stay on the gridiron and up-to-date on concussion management and recovery!

Please join representatives from NovaCare Rehabilitation, NorthShore University Health System and Midwest Bone and Joint Institute for an informative session on concussions, return to play and return to learn protocols!

The concussion seminar will cover signs and symptoms of a concussion, baseline testing, what to do if a concussion is suspected or confirmed, the role of varying healthcare professionals in concussion management and recovery and return to activity protocols.
