8 CE hours, $160 by October 13, after $175  


Treating the Source of Headache Pain

Headaches refer to a broad range of pain experienced in the head, face, and skull. They derive from any combination of various structures including nerves, sutures, sinuses, arteries, muscles, and functional and structural abnormalities. Sources can be local and remote from the site of pain. The key to treating headaches is combining the client's symptom profile with incisive history taking and prolific palpatory assessment. We can then differentiate among many sources and types of headache and base our treatments accordingly. In this workshop students will learn to differentiate between facial, sutural, TMJ, neurologic, structural and vestibular causes. They will also learn about migraine, tension, sinus, cluster and other headaches as well as their different presentations and targeted methods of treatment.
