Vestibular Rehabilitation & Concussion Certification Workshop

Course Description: Based on demand, we have combined our popular and highly regarded Vestibular Rehabilitation and Concussion Certification workshops into one four-day workshop. Now you can obtain dual certification for the cost of one.

This four-day, competency-based, workshop presents rehabilitation and therapy protocols to manage identifiable vestibular and balance system disorders, including cortical and labyrinthine concussion. Evidence based protocols will be presented, demonstrated and practiced to ensure therapists and clinicians produce excellent outcomes. The workshop will include significant hands-on practice to increase skill competencies. An online examination will follow to complete the certification process. CEU acquisition is independent of the certification.


Speakers: Richard E. Gans, Ph.D; Darren Kurtzer, Au.D; Sara Jagger, Au.D.; Jim Eimer, PT; Kathy Kounnas, DPT

 

Course Objectives:

Course participants upon completion will be able to:

  • Differentiate vestibular test abnormalities that identify patients who are “appropriate” candidates for therapy.
  • Use diagnosis based strategies for designing and implementing therapy.
  • Apply specific therapy protocols within individualized programs for patients.
  • Initiate and implement a comprehensive vestibular rehabilitation program within their scope of practice.
  • Explain the pathophysiology of a concussion
  • Recognize who is most at risk of sustaining a concussion
  • Discuss the functional anatomy of the central nervous system and balance system
  • Recognize the differences between the cortical recovery process and central vestibular compensation
  • Name the different symptoms between a cortical v. labyrinthine concussion
  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion, second impact syndrome, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy
  • Identify need for removal from activity and evaluation:
    • Demonstrated implementation of cortical, vestibular, and visual assessment techniques
    • Integrate cortical and vestibular rehabilitation into a comprehensive concussion management program with longitudinal therapeutic outcome measures
    • Describe and develop return-to-play decisions based on your therapeutic intervention.
    • Implement a comprehensive concussion program
