Description

Brain injuries present a myriad of challenges for both patients and therapists. Symptoms range from debilitating dizziness and blurred vision to persistent headaches. Despite your best efforts and adherence to time-tested methods targeting the vestibular aspects, many patients continue to grapple with daily challenges. It’s frustrating, isn’t it? Feeling like a vital piece of the treatment puzzle is just out of reach?

It’s time to consider a groundbreaking perspective: the profound role of the visual system in post-concussion symptoms.

Dive deep into the often-overlooked influence of the visual system in concussion management. With Robert Constantine, OTR/L, leverage over two decades of clinical expertise to swiftly pinpoint and remedy common post-injury complications:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Issues with balance
  • Blurred and double vision

The importance of comprehensive concussion management has gained massive media attention. Yet, many regions face a stark shortage of specialists. This seminar isn’t just about gaining knowledge—it’s about positioning you as the beacon of hope for those battling the after-effects of concussions and mild TBIs.

Empower yourself with groundbreaking strategies—from a revolutionary vision trick that offers instant relief to a range of DIY tools. Let this seminar be the catalyst that transforms your approach for a symptom-free horizon for your patients.
