North American Seminars Introduces a New Physical Therapy Continuing Education Course, Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussions
Date:9/29/2013

Franklin, TN (PRWEB) September 29, 2013

This course is a two-day, advanced physical therapy continuing education course focusing on balance and vestibular sequellae that may arise following a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). The cause of concussions can be varied, from sports related injuries, car accidents, falls, to the more unique and complex mTBI sustained by the thousands of returning soldiers from war zone regions. While at first glance, it appears that blast and blunt traumas can result in similar injuries, the course will emphasize the differences present.

This PT continuing education course is designed to aid in the identification of vestibular and balance deficits following a concussion. The participant will learn what types of diagnoses are most common following a concussion, expected recovery, outcomes and prognosis. We will cover a variety of pathologies including diffuse axonal injury, skull fractures, complex cases of BPPV, vestibular loss, cranial nerve damage, fistulas, traumatic Meniere™s, whiplash, motion intolerance, exercise induced dizziness and balance dysfunctions. We will discuss current return to play guidelines, their limitations and how balance plays an important role.

Case studies will be introduced so that participants will learn to systematically approach the examination, establish a working diagnosis and develop treatment plan and finally exercise prescription. Case studies will include several videos examples, focusing on key features to aid in interpretation of eye movement patterns and developing differential diagnosis from skills learned during lab.

This course is organized to build in complexity, through case presentations, guided lab and lectures to allow the learner to have a thorough understanding of how to manage this population without getting overwhelmed! Throughout the course, evidence-based practice is emphasized. Participants will be able to develop clear, concise treatment regimen, learn how to educate patient, families and coaches on when is the best time to “return to play”. Finally, participants will learn what is known in the literature, what is not known and how you as a health care provider can play a prominent role.
