BRIEF DESCRIPTION

The two-days Manual Therapy For The Upper Cervical Spine & Headache course will cover the anatomical and functional basis to the evaluation of disorders of the upper cervical spine including headache. Of special interest will be evidence based clinical practice, emphasizing clinical examination, evaluation, interpretation, differential diagnosis and treatment.

 

This course will be conducted in lecture, tutorial and workshop format for the clinician or academic who is interested in manual therapy, manual medicine or musculoskeletal medicine. 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 with no previous experience in this special area. As a result of attending this course it is anticipated that participants will gain personal satisfaction as in a variety of ways, which will enhance their individual requirements. There are therefore no pre-requisites for participation.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES
