2022 Advanced Track Topics

  • Early Recognition and Initiation of Intervention for Vestibular Ocular Impairments following Concussion: The Importance of Early Motor Learning (4 hours)
  • Getting a “Leg Up” on Treating Ankle Dysfunction, A Broad-Based Manual Therapy Approach (6 hours)

Early Recognition and Initiation of Intervention for Vestibular Ocular Impairments following Concussion: The Importance of Early Motor Learning (4 hours)

8 a.m. to noon June 28

Recent literature has shown 50 to 80% incidence of visual and/or vestibular dysfunction following sports-related concussion (SRC).  Athletic trainers are the first line of defense in SRC and can play an important role of early identification and initiation of treatment of driving symptomology. The Vestibular Ocular Motor Screening Tool is an outcome measure designed for early detection of vestibular and ocular deficits following SRC with a 2% false positive rate. It can be utilized for early identification to guide initiation of rehabilitation strategies and/or referral for treatment to decrease recovery time and ensure safe return to sport.

Getting a “Leg Up” on Treating Ankle Dysfunction, A Broad-Based Manual Therapy Approach (6 hours)

8 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 28

Ankle sprains are one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries that athletic trainers will treat. Various techniques and approaches exist to treating ankle sprains. This session will present an eclectic approach to treating lateral ankle sprains by incorporating a variety of manual therapy techniques targeted at reducing symptoms and improving ankle function in the acute and sub-acute phases. Pathomechanics, such as positional faults, fascial distortio, and altered arthrokinematics, will be addressed. Manual techniques improving outcomes such as joint mobilizations (grades I-V), positional release therapy, neural mobilization techniques, strain-counter-strain, muscle energy and fascial distortion techniques will be discussed, demonstrated and practiced.
