Dr. Jessica Schwartz joins us, this week, on the EIM Clinical Podcast! Jess is a physical therapist and expert in the management of concussion. Jess has very interesting perspective, not only from the professional standpoint as a PT, but also from a personal standpoint, having gone through a motor vehicle accident and journeying through the healthcare system, managing her own concussion.
Jess shares where we are at, as a profession and in the research, with concussion management, separating fact from myth. Additionally, the correct definition of concussion is “any blow or jolt to the head or body.” Also, OWN THIS: Neck pain is a symptom of migraine that can be explained by nervous system anatomy.
Jess also has some fantastic resources linked below!
