Concussion Workshop - 2 day Comprehensive practical patient management  


Physio Course in Australia Australia   Location: ACU Campus, North Sydney

Physiotherapy Course Summary:
This 2-day WORKSHOP has been designed for anyone with an interest in the Assessment, Treatment and Management of concussion, including Sports Physicians, General Practitioners, Physiotherapists, Trainers, Coaches and Sports Administrators.
Day 1- is designed to give an overview of concepts for all participants. Whilst day 2 is more suited to those who also wish to gain hands on experience of specific assessment and management techniques with respect to the physiological, cervical and vestibular systems when implicated in concussion. It is MANDATORY TO ATTEND DAY 1, if you wish to attend day 2.
The workshop emphasises differential diagnosis in the assessment of concussion including consideration of the potential of impairments in the physiological, vestibular, oculomotor systems and/or cervical spine to be contributing to signs and symptoms post-concussion. The course will show that when there is evidence that the autonomic nervous system is disrupted (physiological) the clear choice for treatment is controlled exercise. The presenters will describe the why’s and how’s of physiological assessment and treatment and evidence from recently completed trials that demonstrate that effective treatment can reduce time to recovery and perhaps more importantly can reduce the likelihood of delayed recovery.
Teaching will cover discussions in developing a treatment plan for concussion; the use of neuropsychological testing; the assessment and differential diagnosis of post-concussive disorders; the treatment of comorbidities such as neck, oculomotor, or vestibular conditions; protocols for optimum return to play and “return to learn”; the special considerations given to concussed children and adolescents; and the current knowledge about the long-term consequences of concussion.
The workshop is designed to be both practical and highly interactive, with case examples and videos used throughout to demonstrate the cardinal signs and illustrate the learning objectives. The workshop will also explore assessment methods to identify the vestibular, oculomotor and/or cervicogenic contributions and directions for management when impairments in these areas are identified. Considerations with respect to primary and secondary prevention of injury will also be explored.
The 3 presenters bring together a wealth of information and experience in their fields and have been researchers and teachers in these fields for over the last 25 years.

Dr Barry Willer: Professor, State University of New York at Buffalo.
Dr Julia Treleaven: Physiotherapist, Lecturer and Senior Researcher Neck pain and whiplash research unit University of Qld.
