Free Concussion lecture at iPlay America – Wed, Aug 13 at 7:30pm

Come join us for a free lecture at iPlay America on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 7:30pm. “ Concussions in Youth Sports: what every parent and coach needs to know” will be presented by Stephen G Rice, MD, Director of Sports Medicine at Jersey Shore University Medical Center and David Bertone, PT, DPT, OCS, owner of ConcussionRXcare at db Orthopedic Physical Therapy.  Both Dr. Rice and Dr. Bertone have been involved in the education and management of concussed athletes for many years and have been collaborating over the past 3 years to educate the community about the epidemic of concussions in youth sports.  This event was developed in conjunction with Freehold Township Soccer and Freehold Area Football leagues who wanted to put on an educational program for all their coaches and parents in order to implement a comprehensive concussion management program for their organizations.  “I believe that this free lecture will have a positive impact on our club.  Many athletes do not report concussion symptoms to their coaches and parents because they just don’t know what the symptoms are like.  Because baseline testing usually occurs early on in the season, the very act of getting tested will raise concussion awareness for athletes, parents, and coaches and establish an emergency protocol to follow in the event of when a concussion occurs.” Dennis Mojares Freehold Soccer League Training & Development.

When iPlay America was gracious enough to provide a very large conference area, the event was opened to all the surrounding communities to educate as many people as possible about head injuries in youth sports.  Dr. Rice will discuss the science of concussion including the signs and symptoms as well as common treatment approaches.  Dr. Bertone will discuss the on-field evaluation by parents and coaches utilizing the internationally recognized Concussion Recognition Tool, the importance of a baseline concussion testing program and common post-concussion rehabilitation protocols.

Several area sports organizations are mandating attendance by all their coaches so they are properly prepared if one of their athletes sustains a head injury.  Parents are encouraged to attend as well so they can be prepared to make an educated decision regarding the treatment immediately after injury.  When both groups are educated, a complete concussion management protocol can be developed by the youth sports organizations.  Please join us for this special event.  You can register online at www.concussionRXcare.com or by calling 732-747-1262.  Onsite baseline concussion testing will be available for all athletes 10 years of age and older during the lecture.  In addition, iPlay America will be offering a special promotion for people to bring their kids to experience this outstanding indoor theme park!

This free event will be held on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 7:3opm at  the conference center in iPlay America.  1100 Schanck Road, Freehold, NJ.  Register online by clicking here.
