We will discuss current “return to play”. guidelines, their limitations and how balance plays an important role. Case studies will be introduced so that participants will learn to systematically approach the examination, establish a working diagnosis and develop the treatment plan and finally exercise prescription. Case studies will include several videos examples, focusing on key features to aid in interpretation of eye movement patterns and developing differential diagnosis from skills learned during lab.
