It’s nearly that time of year. Fall sports. And an increased incidence of concussion.
Our good friend Nick Pfeifer, EdM, ATC from Boston University recently published an article on the Go4 blog about Vestibular Ocular Monitoring Screening.
If you don’t have time to read the full blog, remember this:
ATs should be screening their concussed patients for vestibular and ocular dysfunctions. It’s that simple. It’s safe. It’s quick. It’s easy. And best of all, it’s POWERFUL. Any dysfunction uncovered throughout the screening becomes the entry point to an individualized rehabilitation program. Then, the screening can be repeated to assess readiness for discharge. This is that powerful. One tool can help diagnose, treat and discharge patients with vestibular and ocular dysfunction.
