Dysautonomia Bootcamp

Neuro-Rehabilitation in POTS Syndrome

Presented by: Dr. Nathan Keiser

Are you looking to solve Dyautonomias and don’t know where to start? Curious about the Functional Neurology approach to those conditions? Let the Dysautonomia Bootcamp serve as your jumpstart into that journey! 

Often misunderstood and misdiagnosed, Dysautonomia has historically been a challenging set of conditions for clinicians and their patients… until now!  Dysautonomia Bootcamp serves to quickly get you up to speed and demystify those set of conditions, along with a special focus on postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). Learn diagnosis, pathophysiology, examination skills and a novel treatment approach to solving what once was a challenging set of conditions. 

Treatment Apporach

Clinicians leveraging the Functional Neurology paradigm to solve dysautonomia use a multimodal approach that requires astute physical and neurological examination skills, as well as the brain-based approach that the Carrick Institute has been teaching for over 44 years.  The assessments taught allow clinicians to create individualized treatment plans for the patients, with the aim of restoring their normal autonomic function as quickly and effectively as possible. 

Scholars Will Learn
– Understand the normal neuro cardiorespiratory function and its alterations in POTS.
– Develop skills in bedside and advanced neuro-autonomic testing for POTS.
– Identify conventional treatment strategies and their implications.
– Design and implement effective neurological rehabilitation strategies based on individual patient needs.
– Engage in case-based discussions for a deeper understanding of POTS management.
Who is this class for?
This program serves as an introduction to Dysautonomia and POTS, as well as a Functional Neurology approach to those conditions. Dysautonomia Bootcamp will appeal to any healthcare practitioner wanting to understand the breadth, depth, and applications of how to masterfully help patients suffering from dysautonomia.

The healthcare professionals that can attend this program are MD, DC, DO, PT, OT, ATC, LMT, ND, LAc, PA, NP, and CA (If accompanied by DC).
