A Manual Therapy Approach to Treatment of Headaches

February 20, 2020

Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital Rehabilitation Services is Proud to Host a CEU Course for Professionals:
A Manual Therapy Approach to Treatment of Headaches


Date: April 4th, 2020

Time: 7:30am-5:30pm

Course Description

This one-day class focuses on taking a very common condition that is not commonly treated by therapists – headaches – and showing clinicians 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 / treatment in a comprehensive approach. The class is evidence based and every technique is repeated multiple times throughout the class so each participant has the chance to learn them well. When you leave this class you will walk away with a comprehensive and strong foundation for treatment of the head and neck.

As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the seminar, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting.

Course Objectives

At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to:

  • Correctly differentiate 4 characteristics of musculoskeletal headaches from other causes
