#214 Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion


Brain injuries are a major health concern and cause extremely diverse impairments and functional limitations. Areas that may be affected included cognition, mood, vision, vestibular, cervical spine, and sleep. Brain injury patients may also have headaches or migraines. Patients who have had brain injuries or concussion should thus be managed according to their unique presentations of signs and symptoms.


The course covers comprehensive neurological evaluation and treatment strategies including those related to the  Rancho Los Amigos scale, vestibular, oculomotor, and balance. Brain injury management requires a multi-disciplinary approach.


The course begins with a comprehensive overview of brain injury including the epidemiology, etiology, mechanisms of injury, classification of severity, and pathophysiology. This course will focus on Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Severe, Moderate, and Mild categories of dysfunction will be discussed in depth.  A major focus will be on mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) also known as Concussions since these are 90% or more of Traumatic Brain Injuries.


This course is designed for Physical Therapists, Physical Therapists Assistants, Occupational Therapists, and Athletic Trainers. Brain injury patients may be seen in all settings including inpatient, rehabilitation, SNF, and outpatient.  (Intermediate Level)
