This is a one-day course intended for Physical Therapists, Athletic Trainers, and other Healthcare Providers who are involved in the evaluation, management, treatment, and return to activity (including school, play, and work) for individuals with a concussion across the lifespan. This course will provide basic background information about diagnosis and immediate management of a concussion as well as evaluation and treatment techniques that can be utilized by the Physical Therapist and Athletic Trainer immediately upon completion of the course.  This will also include topics such as vestibular rehabilitation, exercise testing, vision exercises, and return to play protocols.  Up-to-date evidence and practical application of this information will be reviewed to maximize effectiveness of the Physical Therapist and Athletic Trainer in becoming a first contact provider for management of concussions.  This course includes a lab portion as well.
