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 3-day (25.5 hour) course is primarily geared towards the clinician interested in learning evidence-based management for both the vestibular and/or concussion (m-TBI) patient. The workshop will present both assessment and rehabilitation 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 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
  • 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
