The Management of Cervicogenic Pain and Headaches After Concussion
Presented by Rene'e James, MSPT, OCS, CMP, Bailey Denno, PT, DPT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2909 Level: Introductory2 Hours
This course provides an up to date literature review on guidelines for the management and treatment options for post-concussion syndrome. Participants should expect to receive a clear understanding of manual and exercise interventions as well as communication skills necessary to facilitate patients’ safe and expedited return to activity and sport after traumatic head and neck injury. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Functional Evaluation and Treatment: the foot bone is connected to the head bone.
Presented by Anita Davidson, PT, DPT, CAFS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2939 Level: Intermediate4 Hours
Please note: This course series is comprised of the following individual recordings: #2925, and #2902.

Part 1 of this two-part series will cover evaluation and will challenge you to perform self assessment of balance, mobility, stability, and function in three planes of motion to assist in the understanding of function from the foot to the head using a cause and effect methodology. Part 2 will concentrate on functional exercise and treatment.

Concussion and the Older Adult: Does Age Make a Difference?
Presented by Debbie Struiksma, PT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2879 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course is designed for therapists looking to expand their knowledge and clinical skills in the assessment and intervention of older adults with mild traumatic brain injury. Often these patients have overwhelming symptoms and comorbidities that make them challenging to manage. This course will review the evidence and present a working framework for successful management and improved outcomes in this population. The content of this course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Concussion: Conditioning the Brain and Body for Return to Sport
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2881 Level: Advanced2 Hours
Concussion rehabilitation is perhaps the most emergent science in rehabilitative medicine. We recognize a concussion and understand the physiology of injury and of recovery better now than we did just 5 years ago. When the goal is to return to the athletic field, concussion rehabilitation is complicated by the myths, the motivations (athlete, coaches, parents), and the unique notion of returning a patient back to a potentially threatening environment requiring a very high level of skill to be safe, much less to perform. In this webinar, we will use evidence in concussion rehabilitation to tackle these complications in an effort to help clinicians navigate the recovery protocol and decision-making processes toward an optimal outcome and timely return. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Chronic Post-Concussion Syndrome: Psychological and Cognitive Implications for Treatment
Presented by Brady Whetten, PT, DPT, GCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2877 Level: Advanced2 Hours
Persistent non-vertiginous dizziness can be a prominent disabling complaint following a concussion. While treatment techniques of habituation, adaptation, and substitution are well established, many individuals with post-concussion syndrome suffer from additional psychological and cognitive impairments. Traditional vestibular rehab techniques are often ineffective and occasionally counterproductive in dealing with these individuals. The intent of this course will be to provide rehabilitation professionals specific tools to better treat and manage patients who exhibit primary impairments of somatosensory/vestibular processing deficits, dual task intolerance and autonomic nervous system maladaptation. We will present the latest evidence regarding the use of dual task techniques, sensory facilitation and integrative relaxation techniques. Through case applications, we will present a framework to successfully identify individuals that will benefit from this expanded toolbox based on their history and examination, and clear examples of progressing interventions and measuring progress. Proper dosage to ensure tolerance and sufficient training to optimize recovery will be reviewed. The content of this course is appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Concussion Management Update: Recommendations from the Berlin Meeting
Presented by Tamara McLeod, PhD, ATC, FNATA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2893 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will discuss the development process of the most recent international concussion consensus statements. Specific recommendations based on the 12 accompanying systematic reviews will be highlighted. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

The Science of Fall Prevention
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Live WebinarMon, Nov 27, 2017 at 8:00 pm EST
Course: #2825 Level: Introductory2 Hours
What is the difference between screening and testing? What is the science of imbalance? What are the differences between unsteadiness, imbalance, dizziness, lightheadedness, and vertigo? How do I document to prove my worth, my role, or this patient’s potential? What is the evidence for helping someone improve balance? What is the best method to select the most sensitive and responsive balance test for each patient? What psychological influences could be involved with this person? The answers to these questions and more are in this seminar intended for advanced dizziness management- differential diagnostics and treatment. Expect practical techniques, readily applied to the clinic, incorporating current evidence and revealing future advances in balance and dizziness rehabilitation. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Function: the foot bone is connected to the head bone! Functional Exercises & Treatment (Part 2)
Presented by Anita Davidson, PT, DPT, CAFS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2902 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course challenges what we know of function in three planes of motion from the foot to the head related to common orthopedic conditions that are a result of a breakdown of the kinetic chain focusing on the cause of pain versus symptoms. This class will challenge you to perform self assessment of balance, mobility, stability, and function in three planes of motion to assist in the understanding of function from the foot to the head using a cause and effect methodology. This is part 2 of a two-part series concentrating on functional exercise and treatment.

Overcoming the Difficulties of Obesity in the Clinical Application of Physical Therapy
Presented by Steven Mauk, M.Ed
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2889 Level: Introductory2 Hours
The main idea of the course is to provide strategies for physical therapy professionals to not only help their patients identify their obesity is directly linked to their ability to recover, but also provide guidance for physical therapy professionals with developing a treatment plan that will assist with the patient's acute injury and comorbidity. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
