Get Your Head in the Game: Rehabilitative Strategies to Address Concussions

Presented by: Audrey Paslow PT, DPT, NCS


This introductory course will cover the basics involving concussion management evaluation and treatment strategies for the physical therapist. The speaker will present a multi-faceted evaluation approach, the domains of health affected by concussion, and the treatment strategies that accompany each evaluation technique. This includes assessment of the cervical spine, oculomotor and vestibular evaluations, balance assessment, and finally, addressing the importance of including exertional testing and retraining with a specific protocol. The speaker will include information on health literacy and learning as it affects this population, as well as a breakout sessions of patient case examples to work through.


By the end of this full-day course: 

1. The therapist will apply the multifaceted evaluation approach to a patient case example.

2. The therapist will summarize essential questions to ask during a patient interview. 

3. The therapist will apply treatment techniques to a patient case example, and describe how this fits into the return to work/play process. 

4. The therapist will analyze the impact health literacy has on the evaluation and care of this patient population. 

5. The therapist will identify additional resources and tools that can be applied to practice.
