The Burlington County Times featured an article about the Cooper Bone & Joint Institute’s free educational forum on concussions as a result of sports related injuries. The forum, which took place at Moorestown High School on Wednesday, September 1, 2010, focused on prevention and identification of concussions as well as available treatment options.
“Unreporting is going to be a very big problem this year,” said R. Robert Franks, DO, Director, Concussion Program and Assistant Director of Sports Medicine at Cooper’s Bone & Joint Institute. “And it’s really going to depend on everyone, from athlete to coach to athletic trainer to parent to let us know. The key to this is, if we handle concussion No. 1 and No. 2 right, hopefully we’ll never get to No. 4, 5 and 6.”
David Gealt, DO, Assistant Director, Concussion Program at Cooper’s Bone & Joint Institute was also a guest speaker at the program.
