Description

A Manual Therapy Approach to Treatment of Headaches is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held on Dec 05, 2020 at Orthopedic Associates of Lancaster, LTD., Lancaster, Pennsylvania, United States of America. Accreditation:This course has been submitted for 16 continuing education hours. Approval amounts may vary per state. Certificates of attendance with the number of course hours will be given to each participant at the completion of the course. 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 • Identify 4 different referral patterns by vertebral level • Identify 5 different referral patterns by muscle • Demonstrate the ability to complete 6 mobilizations of the cervical spine • Demonstrate the ability to treat 5 myofascial dysfunctions in muscles most commonly causing headache • Demonstrate the ability to correct 4 mechanical dysfunctions leading to muscle and joint dysfunctions  Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
