Vestibular Rehabilitation & Concussion Certification Workshop

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

This three-day, introductory course primarily geared for the novice clinician and those who are new to the management of concussion and/or vestibular rehabilitation. The 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 ensuring therapists and clinicians produce excellent outcomes. The workshop will include significant hands-on practice to increase skill competencies.

Speakers: Richard E. Gans, PhD; Steven E. Spinks, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT; Brittany Fauble, Au.D., Board Certified, CCC-A; Kim Rutherford, PT, DSc, COMT; Joseph Sakumura, AuD, Board Certified, CCC-A; Alyssa Steinweis, Au.D., Board Certified, CCC-A (faculty may vary based on availability and location)


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

  • 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
