Current Concepts in Concussion: What EVERY Chiropractor Can Do in 2017
Dr. Spencer Baron is a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians. He delights in having been the Team Chiropractic Physician for the NFL’s, Miami Dolphins (19 seasons). He was also the Chiropractor for MLB’s, Miami Marlins and NHL’s Florida Panther’s. Additionally, he’s treated the Major League Baseball’s, New York Mets, the San Francisco Giants and the Colorado Rockies.
Dr. Baron was the first chiropractor in South Florida to be provided hospital staff privileges. He was appointed staff Chiropractic Physician to Doctor’s Hospital of Hollywood, 1992, and was then named Department Head of the Golden Glades Regional Medical Center’s Division of Chiropractic Services (1994 to 1996).
Dr. Baron’s completed his book, “Secrets of the Game – What superstar athletes can teach you about health, peak performance and getting results.”
Despite the increased global attention towards Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs), there is still an
absence of a clearly defined protocol that is scientifically accepted as the standard for
concussion diagnosis and treatment. Even as the development and application of new
technology gains popularity in the scientific community, interpretation of the resulting data
remains uncertain and fraught with new challenges.
Recognizing the potential benefits in new, clinically recognized, preventative, diagnostic, and
therapeutic approaches, this program will strive to uncover the relevance of new findings and its
application in the Chiropractic paradigm.
