Concussion Management - Updates and Advances in Neurologic Physical Therapy

Awareness and understanding about concussion has been expanding rapidly over the last several years, and the role of the neurologic physical therapist in managing individuals post-concussion has also evolved. Many individuals who incur a concussion require rehabilitation to help manage dizziness, headache, nausea, visual deficits, cervical dysfunction, balance dysfunction, and exertional symptoms.  Various models for forming interdisciplinary “concussion teams” now exist and can be effective across different health care delivery systems. This special issue recognizes the important role of the neurologic physical therapist in managing individuals with concussion across the lifespan, with a particular focus on recent advances in this area of practice.  
 
We are seeking manuscripts on topics related to any aspect of concussion management (examination, screening, intervention, interdisciplinary collaboration) relevant to neurologic physical therapy.
