FREE Concussion Seminar
Submitted By Susan Burnett on Tuesday, September 10, 2019
On Sunday September 29th, 2019, at 9 am, Orillia Sports Medicine will be hosting a Concussion Seminar open to any parent, player, or coach, from any sport.  

The event will be conducted in memory of Ryan Crowther, who suffered from post-concussion syndrome.


His family foundation knows the importance of this issue and would like to raise awareness in the community because concussions can happen to anyone and lead to damaging effects if not treated properly.   

The goal of the program is to inform people of the warning signs and symptoms of a possible concussion, as well as learn about the proper assessment and treatment that athletes need in order to avoid significant issues. 

Roughly 30% of concussion sufferers can have symptoms that persist past 30 days, which is the diagnostic criteria for post-concussion syndrome.
There are multiple factors which can contribute to the progression to post-concussion syndrome. The key to trying to prevent this is to follow a graduated, managed process, that monitors these potentially complicating factors and addresses them appropriately. 

The seminar is Sunday September 29th, 2019, at 9 am and is FREE, thanks to the Ryan Crowther Memorial Golf Tournament and the Orillia Hockey Academy.

The seminar will be held at Sports Medicine, 3285 Monarch Drive, Orillia. (Beside Home Sense)   To register and save your seat, please email [email protected]
