R2P Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome teaches how to differentiate cervical, vestibular, visual, mental health, and autonomic causes of persistent post-concussion symptoms. Course participants will learn how to prioritize treatment using an evidence-based series of algorithms and the R2P SCORE. Whether you are an experienced therapist, or new to practice, learn to integrate current evidence with clinical reasoning to solidify your skills in the context of concussion. Consolidate learning through hands-on practice and small group case studies.

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.
