Chronic Post-Concussion Syndrome: Psychological and Cognitive Implications for Treatment

Course: #2877 Level: Advanced 2 Hours 378 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

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.
