COURSE CONTENT

This full-day course focuses on the differential diagnosis, manual examination and treatment of patients with a cervicogenic, visual, vestibular, or autonomic dysfunction component of post-concussion syndrome.  R2P SCORE™ provides an evidence-based, systematic approach to identifying which functional impairments may be contributing to persistent symptoms.  Clinicians will learn to rank treatment priorities based on R2P SCORE™ results, and develop clinically sound individualized treatment protocols.  Detailed exercise programs will be practiced in the hands-on sessions.  Acquired skills can be immediately applied in the clinical setting.
