BOULDER, Colo. - In this video from the International Extreme Sports Medicine Congress, Sherrie L. Ballantine-Talmadge, DO, discussed sport-specific return to play protocols for extreme sports athletes.

“What we have found throughout the years is that – even with diagnosis as well as treatment – we had to make it sport-specific. These athletes developed early brain mapping so that they could spin, twist and turn in a different way than a football player or a soccer player,” she said. “The goal of today was to have people think and take the next step and understand there [are] differences in the way that you [rehabilitate] athletes after concussion, and that you are going to get the best outcome with a sport-specific return.”
