Concussion treatment option at trainer’s conference

 

Taken from WGME 13 (June 7, 2015):

 

SOUTH PORTLAND (WGME) — Athletic trainers across New England are in South Portland’s Double Tree Hotel for the Northeast Athletic Trainer’s Conference.

 

The conference connects businesses that help athletes recover from injuries.

 

A big topic at this years conference was concussions.

 

The Scarborough NeuroDevelopment Center was there with its Interactive Metronome.  That’s a computer program that uses tones to help people improve their timing and regrow neural pathways in the brain.

 

“We see people, sometimes they’ve had a concussion for a year,” Suzanne Sylvester of the Scarborough NeuroDevelopment Center said about post concussion syndrome.  “Immediately after the concussion happens it’s important not to sit in a dark room, (instead) get treatment, and we offer that treatment.”

 

The Northeast Athletic Trainers Conference runs through June 7.
