Dr. Cypher attended the INOVA Concussion: 2016 Updates on Assessment and Management this past week. The continuing education event was sponsored by Inova Neuroscience and Spine Institute and was held at the Lansdowne Campus of INOVA. Topics included epidemiology, pediatric concussion assessment, evaluation, and management. An interesting session included the effects of exercise post concussion and youth sports. Dr. Scott continues to incorporate updated concussion protocol in his practice and education. Take a look at a fact sheet about concussions from: U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Centers for Disease Control and Prevention http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/pdfs/providers/fact_sheet_concusstbi-a.pdf
Dr. Scott has been involved in youth sports since the start of his practice as volunteer and care provider. His four boys played in sports –football, baseball, cross country, soccer, tennis, golf, track, snow skiing, and rowing. They kept him busy year round! He is acutely aware of the need for conditioning and care management in sports.
