Becky Bliss, neurologic clinical specialist and assistant teaching professor in Physical Therapy, was a featured guest on two episodes of the podcast Concussion Corner earlier this month! March is Brain Injury Awareness month, and Dr. Bliss wants everyone, regardless of whether or not they are a health care provider, to be knowledgable about the signs and symptoms of brain injuries.
“Concussion or mild TBI is a unique injury because there are not visible impairments to the outside person. Often these patients struggle with symptoms like dizziness, visual disturbance, headaches, neck pain, exertional intolerance and/or balance difficulty,” said Dr. Bliss. “Early referral to rehabilitation can make the world of difference!”
This podcast, hosted by Dr. Jessica Schwartz, highlights interdisciplinary conversations surrounding concussions in health care, advocacy, and sports. Dr. Bliss was able to talk about tele-mentoring, concussion clinical profiles and collaborative care across disciplines in both episodes.
“I had a great time on the Concussion Corner podcast, sharing my journey of treating patients with brain injury,” Dr. Bliss said.
