Course Description
An Impairment Based Approach to Concussion Assessment and Rehab will introduce an impairment-focused clinical assessment and treatment model for understanding, diagnosing, and managing concussions, regardless of how they have occurred.

Course Objectives
This workshop will provide you with:

  • An understanding of the biomechanics of concussion, and relevant anatomy and physiology
  • The ability to effectively take a concussion-focused patient history
  • An assessment template to find the sources or drivers for patients' symptoms after concussion - based on current evidence and best practices
  • Programming strategies for patients with acute or chronic concussion symptoms
  • Confidence to teach your patients about their injury, and what they can do to optimize their recovery
  • Tools to determine when rest is helpful, and when it might be harmful
  • Information to bust some common concussion myths

Audience
This course is designed for physiotherapists, athletic therapists, chiropractors, kinesiologists, and massage therapists.

CEUs
This course is approved for 1.6 CEUs by the Canadian Athletic Therapy Association (CATA).
