This seminar examines the common complications and side effects that can occur with Concussion, also referred to as Mild TBI.

Mild TBI (Concussion) is a major issue affecting millions of people every year. Owing to the insidious nature of this condition, often it can mask a host of complications, including headache, vestibular dysfunction, visual issues and so on. This seminar discusses some of the most common issues seen post-concussion, including: dizziness, visual impairment, headaches and community re-integration; and teaches assessment and treatment strategies that can be used for management of this patient in the rehab setting, outpatient, and in home care.

Hands-on labs and tools for clinic use ensure that this course is immediately applicable to the setting you are working in, and changes to your practice can be made from the very next day!

What makes this course different?

ARC Seminars sets itself apart from the competition in many ways!

  • Most courses are aimed at the widest audience possible, in order to get as many participants as possible. While that can be a great way of getting professionals from different fields together, it is not always conducive to working through specific problems, and can make the information very vague, theoretical, and general. ARC Seminars are specific to the field of rehabilitation, and we have many years of experience in treating and developing procedures for treatment in rehabilitation facilities.
  • We provide guidance and support for setting up your own program! ARC Seminars not only provide education and guidance within the seminar to set up your own program, but we will also provide you with follow up guidance and support after the seminar to ensure that your program is successful!
  • ARC Seminars uses the most up to date and evidence based techniques to ensure your participation in the course is translated to the most learning and carryover possible!
  • Materials: You will be provided with a comprehensive manual of all the presentation slides, exclusive access to our Clinic ToolsCheat Sheets, and Community Resources.
