about conference

Is this Seminar for you?

– You’re a Chiropractor, Physiotherapist, Osteopath and Occupational Therapist looking at improving your clinical competency in managing patients with concussion, whiplash, chronic neck pain, dizziness and poor balance
– You’re a new graduate or experienced practitioner, either with little to no experience in neurology and vestibular rehabilitation
– You desire to make a big difference with an increasing number of patients suffering sporting injuries, motor vehicle accidents and falls
– Feed up with poor results using standard musculoskeletal therapies and outdated principles
– You’re looking for an integrated brain-based approach in managing challenging cases
– You learn best when there is a mix of relevant lecture material, reinforced with hands-on practicals

What you will learn?

– The similarities between whiplash and concussion and how to differentiate between them.
– International Guidelines, policies and position statements.
– Pathophysiology of concussion, from a biomechanical, sensorimotor, neurological, cognitive/neurophyscological, and a metabolic view.
– Advanced brain-based techniques to fix the most challenging chronic neck dysfunction and whiplash cases.
– How to perform an evidenced-based assessment, including cervical joint position error, eye movement, balance, vestibular, memory and cognitive, as well as imaging.
– Enhance your traditional spinal therapies with the latest vestibular neuro-orthopaedic rehabilitation.
– How to prescribe and perform a tailored brain-based management protocol that addresses the sensorimotor, vestibular, cognitive and nutritional aspects.

Morning tea break

11:00AM - 11:15PM


Cervical Spine Assessment & Management 1

11:15PM - 01:00PM

Practical workshops on the assessment and management of

  • Sensorimotor, including joint position sense, kinesthesia and body dissociation

Afternoon tea break

04:00PM - 04:15PM


Autonomic Nervous System testing

04:15PM - 05:00PM

Appreciate the role the ANS has in persistent concussion symptoms, as well understand  how to be guided by markers of ANS function to guide a patient through care. We’ll demonstrate how to assess exercise endurance


NeuroCognitive Screen
