R2P ACUTE MANAGEMENT OF SPORT-RELATED CONCUSSION

Course objectives emphasize the continuum of care from pre-injury baseline testing using R2P SCREEN™, through acute on-field assessment, and symptom management, to sport-specific return to play protocols in the context of the most recent literature. Emergency head and facial injuries not to be missed following head trauma will also be discussed.  Additionally, participants will gain an understanding of how to prescribe rest, and the impact of concussion on academic performance at school and in the workplace.  Return-to-Learn strategies will be discussed and applied to various case studies.  Short- and long-term implication of mild traumatic brain injury will be discussed, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy.  Interactive learning is emphasized through hands-on practice and case studies.

This course has been approved by CATA for 3.2 CEUs.

R2P Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome

This full-day course focuses on the differential diagnosis, manual examination and treatment of patients with a cervicogenic, visual, vestibular, or autonomic dysfunction component of post-concussion syndrome.  R2P SCORE™ provides an evidence-based, systematic approach to identifying which functional impairments may be contributing to persistent symptoms.  Clinicians will learn to rank treatment priorities based on R2P SCORE™ results, and develop clinically sound individualized treatment protocols.  Detailed exercise programs will be practiced in the hands-on sessions.  Acquired skills can be immediately applied in the clinical setting.

This full day course builds upon R2P SCORE™.  Key principles of progressive overload within sub-threshold activity levels will guide the selection of criteria-based treatment progressions using R2P PATH™.  Participants will learn innovative rehabilitative techniques such as advanced vestibular, and ocular motor exercises, and how to apply them within the framework of international guidelines.  Common co-pathologies will be discussed in the context of post-concussion, with a focus on post-traumatic headache, depression, and anxiety.  Strategies for differential diagnosis will be explored using a series of unique algorithms.  Pacing strategies using the principle of sub-threshold activity will be explored and applied.
