R400.00

3 CEUs

    Headache is a common and often incapacitating condition. It is estimated that a headache in some form is experienced by at least 50% of the population, often leading to a visit to a general practitioner or physiotherapist. The number of structures and disorders capable of causing headaches is considerable. This on-line course describes a case study of a patient with chronic headaches which had not been helped by range of previous interventions given by the patient’s GP, Neurologist and other healthcare professionals. The course will teach you/or show you a thorough assessment and subsequently effective evidence based treatment. The neurophysiological effect of the treatment is provided.
