Congratulations to Dr. Chhabra! He was invited by Edurance Scottsdale to present on “Identifying and preventing concussion in sports”. It is estimated that as many as 3.8 million concussions occur in the USA per year during competitive sports and recreation activities; however, as many as 50% of the concussions may go unreported. Dr. Chhabra discussed the latest advancements in diagnosing and treating head injury in sports. In team sports like football and hockey, concussion testing has become the norm in order to determine level of severity of the injury and to safely manage an athlete’s return to sports.
The event on November 14th, 2013 was for athletes at risk (football, soccer, hockey, cycling, basketball, etc.), coaches and parents.
Dr. Chhabra was the first orthopedic surgeon in Arizona to be certified as an ImPACT Specialist (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing).
