R2P Advanced Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome outlines the R2P PATH, an evidence-based approach to concussion rehabilitation. Participants will learn to apply key principles of sub-symptom threshold progressions to vestibular, visual, and exercise therapy. Assessment and management of post-traumatic headaches will be reviewed using a unique algorithm. Current state of evidence on neuroimaging and nutrition will be explored. Learning will be consolidated through small group work and case studies.
8:30 Advanced Neuroimaging and Fluid Biomarkers
What is the role of advanced neuroimaging techniques in the diagnosis of concussion? Can a blood test predict recovery?
9:00 Post-Traumatic Headache
Learn to differentiate types of post- traumatic headache using an evidence-based algorithm and standardized history taking. Understand how to apply best practice treatment techniques.
10:30 Sleep-Wake Disturbances
What is the impact of sleep-wake disturbances on recovery? How do you assess sleep disturbances? What are recommended treatment techniques?
11:00 Post-Traumatic Fatigue
How do you differentiate between cognitive and physical fatigue? Learn best-practice management strategies, including planning and pacing.
11:30 Alternative Therapies
What is the evidence regarding
acupuncture, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and neurofeedback for the management of post- concussion symptoms? Are nutritional supplements effective?
