Noel Neptune, M.Ed., A.T.C., and a group of University of Southern Maine Athletic Training students attended the Athletic Training Student Symposium on Friday, November 11, and Saturday, November 12, 2016. This year’s event was hosted by the University of Maine at Presque Isle and featured presentations on cervical spine dysfunction, resume-writing, and tissue regeneration. Students also participated in dynamic warm-up activities, gained hands-on experience with VOMS (Vestibular Ocular Motor Screening - a tool for evaluating concussions), learned different methods of kinesiology tape application, and practiced both craniosacral therapy techniques and PRRT (Primal Reflex Release Techniques). The students in attendance look forward to next year’s event, which will be held at the University of Maine at Orono.
