Over the past weekend I participated in an Evidence-based CONCUSSION REHABILITATION Course. The course focused on a systematic approach to evaluating and treating patients dealing with vestibular, balance, and musculoskeletal disorders which can result from a concussion. It also provided protocols which are supported by the most current and effective evidence available. The course also highlights the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to treatment for these individuals and the need for early intervention in order to prevent long-term disability and recurrence.
After completion of the weekend long intensive course and exam, I am a Certified Concussion Management Professional through The American Institute of Balance.
