A Manual Therapy Approach to Treatment of Headaches

Headache treatment can be extremely overwhelming as headaches involve several different body systems and affect up to 75% of people. This course will provide you with a starting point of where to treat when patients describe head and face pain, then effective techniques allowing you to give them more headache free days.

 

Over this 1-day course, we’ll take a common condition that’s not commonly treated by therapists and show you how to become comfortable treating it. Treatment approaches include Muscle Energy Technique (MET) to the cervical spine, myofascial release to the neck and head, posture retraining and review of other causes/treatments in a comprehensive approach. This course is evidence-based and every technique is repeated multiple times so you have the chance to perfect them. You’ll walk away with a strong foundation for treatment of the head and neck!

 

As with all our manual therapy courses, this course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give you skills you can use immediately upon returning to the clinic.
