Assessment and treatment of cervical headache

  • Identification of headache suitable for manual therapy
  • Identification and management of cervical articular
  • Neural and muscle impairments in patients with cervicogenic headache

 

 

The aim of this course is to raise practical skills and knowledge regarding evidence based classification and management of cervical headache. Headache is both a symptom and a disease which makes successful management of problematic. Although manual therapy has been advocated to treat a variety of different forms of headache, there is limited evidence for the management of headache forms other than cervical headache. Therefore, classification of headache is important. Due to the diverse nature of headache pathophysiology, diagnosis may be difficult when based on symptoms alone. Consequently, classification of headache is firstly based on the symptoms with clinical testing used to differentiate headache forms with similar subjective presentations. Examination and subsequent diagnosis is essential not only to identify patients with headache where manual therapy is appropriate but also to form a basis for selection of the most appropriate treatment. Recent evidence highlights the diverse nature of cervicogenic headache with disorder of the cervical motor control, articular, and neural sub-systems. This course is highly practical and participants will have close supervision to gain experience in examining and treating this complex (but rewarding in terms of outcome) problem. 

 

  • Evidence based classification of headache suitable for manual therapy
  • Closely supervised practical sessions dealing with identification of cervical articular, neural and motor control impairments in patients with cervicogenic headache
  • Closely supervised practical sessions dealing with manual therapy management of cervical articular, neural and motor control impairments in patients with cervicogenic headache
  • Case studies highlighting differences in management for the identified impairments
