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.

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.

Maximizing Recovery with Exercise for Those with Neurological Diagnosis
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2896 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will provide clinicians with an enhanced knowledge of therapeutic exercise as it applies to persons with neurological disease/diagnoses, highlighting how therapeutic exercise in this population is different from the musculoskeletal diagnoses. The course will focus on evidence based therapeutic exercises that go beyond traditional strengthening/fitness exercises and promote neuroplasticity, motor learning, and recovery of function. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Alterations in Muscle Tone: Diagnosis and Management
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2839 Level: Introductory2 Hours
This course will provide participants with a thorough understanding of the spectrum of muscle tone and the pathophysiology of altered muscle tone. Best practice interventions for hypotonicity and hypertonicity, including rehabilitation and medical management, will be identified. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Contraversive Pushing (Pusher Syndrome)
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2830 Level: Advanced2 Hours
This course will provide participants with tools to identify and objectively evaluate those persons with contraversive pushing, as well as an understanding of the impact of pushing on recovery. Practical strategies for managing persons with contraversive pushing, and ameliorating the perceptual dysfunction will be provided. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Neurologic Gait Analysis, Treatment, and Measurement: Case-Based Interventions for the PTA, Part III: Lesions of the Cerebellum
Presented by Jennifaye V. Brown, PhD, PT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2710 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
The purpose of this course is to review typical stroke lesions of the cerebellum and describe resulting impairments that may be observed during gait. Using a systems approach, the PTA will be instructed how to formulate interventions within their scope of practice and the established plan of care to improve gait impairments. The presentation will utilize a case-based approach to demonstrate and summarize application of the material. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Neurologic Gait Analysis, Treatment, and Measurement: Case-Based Interventions for the PTA, Part II: Lesions of the Subcortex
Presented by Jennifaye V. Brown, PhD, PT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2714 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
The purpose of this course is to review typical stroke lesions of the subcortex and describe resulting impairments that may be observed during gait. Using a systems approach, the PTA will be instructed how to formulate interventions within their scope of practice and the established plan of care to improve gait impairments. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Neurologic Gait Analysis, Treatment, and Measurement: Case-Based Interventions for the PTA, Part I: Lesions of the Cortex
