Docent : Vaidas Stalioraitis (Curtin University – Australia)
The course will cover evidence-based manual therapy examination and treatment techniques for specific headache disorders including cervicogenic headache. Of special interest will be evidence based clinical practice, emphasizing classification, clinical examination, evaluation, interpretation, differential diagnosis and treatment. Headache is both a symptom and a disease that requires careful interpretation to determine if physical intervention is suitable. This course will outline the classification of headache suitable to manual therapy and exercise based on current evidence.
This course will be conducted in lecture, tutorial and workshop format for the clinician who is interested in management of headache using manual therapy. It is anticipated that the course content will be suitable to individuals who are seeking new knowledge, to individuals seeking to expand their knowledge and to those individuals seeking the stimulation of clinical interaction. Whilst the course will be presented at a high level this should not be seen as a barrier to participation for those with little or no previous experience in this special area. After attending the course, participants will gain knowledge and skills that will enhance their clinical management of patients with specific headache disorders including cervicogenic headache.
