The concussion team at The University of Kansas Health System outpatient rehabilitation spine center is comprised of experienced multi-disciplinary experts including physical therapists and a speech language pathologist. The team set forth with a purpose of creating and organizing an internal physical therapy clinical recommendation protocol for initial evaluations and subsequent treatments for the concussed patient. The aim of this paper is to share these recommendation protocols with other therapy teams and provide a foundational layout for treating the patient with post-concussion symptoms in an outpatient physical therapy clinical setting.
