This full day course builds upon R2P SCORE™. Key principles of progressive overload within sub-threshold activity levels will guide the selection of criteria-based treatment progressions using R2P PATH™. Participants will learn innovative rehabilitative techniques such as advanced vestibular, and ocular motor exercises, and how to apply them within the framework of international guidelines. Common co-pathologies will be discussed in the context of post-concussion, with a focus on post-traumatic headache, depression, and anxiety. Strategies for differential diagnosis will be explored using a series of unique algorithms.
Prerequisite: R2P™ Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome
8:30 Review R2P SCORE™ as a determinant of treatment priorities and clinical care pathways using case studies.
9:00 Common co-pathologies seen in complex concussion patients, including post-traumatic headache, depression and anxiety; shared pathophysiology with post-concussion symptoms; current treatment options, including commonly prescribed medications.
10:30 Comprehensive history taking; evidence-based algorithm to differentially diagnose post-traumatic headache and apply best practice treatment.
11:00 Introduction to R2P PATH™; understand how to prescribe criteria-based step-wise treatment progressions based on individual functional limitations.
12:30 Advanced therapeutic exercise for vestibular and balance dysfunction; stepwise treatment progressions; practical session
1:30 Advanced therapeutic exercises for ocular motor dysfunction; stepwise treatment progressions; practical session
2:30 Practical application of R2P PATH™ using principles of symptom-based limitations to prescribe individual treatment plans integrating graduated physical activity with vestibular, visual and cognitive challenges using sub-threshold exercises.
3:30 Case studies with individualized treatment prescriptions.
4:00 Questions and Answers.
