Cervical Musculoskeletal Dysfunction in Headache: How should it be defined?

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Neck pain commonly accompanies migraine and tension-type headache, but the literature is divided on whether this neck pain is a headache symptom or is associated with cervical musculoskeletal dysfunction.  Clarification is essential for hypotheses on the pathogenesis of these headaches and their variants and for decisions on suitability of local neck treatments, both from research and clinical practice perspectives.

    Testimonial:

    "Very informative and relevant."  Alpheus Mogale, Physiotherapist

Headache Symptom Modification: A Case Report

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Objectives:  People who suffer from headache frequently present with multiple headache forms and the precise diagnosis of the dominant headache form can be challenging. This case report describes a headache symptom modification approach in the diagnosis and management of a patient presenting with combined features of chronic migraine and cervicogenic headache (CGH).

    Discussion:  This case report illustrates the use of a manual therapy symptom modification approach in the management of headache. Improvement in headache symptoms and disability suggests that the musculoskeletal impairments and headache symptoms were more a feature of CGH rather than migraine. The mechanisms underlying these changes in symptoms and impairments are discussed.

Evaluation of Neurodynamic Responses in Women with Frequent Episodic Tension Type Headache

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Background:  Current theories associated with the cause of tension type headache are mostly focused on muscle tissues. No study has investigated the presence of role of nerve tissues in this population.  

    Objective:  Our aim was to examine the responses to different mechanical provocation tests of the nerve tissues in women with tension type headache when compared to healthy women.

Physical Exercise and Migraine: For or Against?

R400.00

3 CEUs

    The results of most recent epidemiological studies are consistent to show an inverse association between physical exercise and migraine, but it is quite challenging to establish whether physical inactivity may be the cause or the consequence of migraine, since migraine is a well-establish disabling condition that may actually limit social and physical capabilities.

Development of a Yellow Flag Assessment Tool for Orthopaedic Physical Therapists

R400.00

3 CEUs

    BACKGROUND:  Pain-associated psychological distress adversely influences outcomes for patients with musculoskeletal pain. However, assessment of pain-associated psychological distress (ie, yellow flags) is not routinely performed in orthopaedic physical therapy practice. A standardized yellow flag assessment tool will better inform treatment decision making related to psychologically informed practice.

    OBJECTIVES:  To describe the development of a concise, multidimensional yellow flag assessment tool for application in orthopaedic physical therapy clinical practice.  J Orthop Sports Phys Ther 2016;46(5):327-345.

Temporomandibular Disorders and Cutaneous Allodynia are Associated in Individuals with Migraine

R400.00

3 CEUs

    The objective of this online course is to estimate and contrast the occurrence of ictal and interictal cutaneous allodynia (CA) in individuals with migraine with and without temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Both TMD and CA are common in migraine and may be associated with migraine transformation from episodic into a chronic form.

Concussion in the Sport Position Statement:  Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    There has been growing concern locally and internationally about the incidence of sport-related concussion and potential health ramifications for athletes. If managed appropriately most symptoms and signs of concussion resolve spontaneously, however complications can occur including prolonged duration of symptoms and increased susceptibility to further injury. There is also growing concern about potential long-term consequences of multiple concussions. 

    This course will provide you with information regarding the timely recognition and appropriate management of sport-related concussion. It will also provide you with clear, unequivocal and reliable information to be readily accessible to all members of the community.

    This Position Statement on Concussion in Sport brings together the most contemporary evidence-based information and presents it in a format that is appropriate for all stakeholders. This e-Learning course seeks to ensure that all members of the public have rapid access to information to increase their understanding of sport-related concussion and to assist in the delivery of best practice medical care.
