CLINICAL TRAINING & COMMUNICATION PROGRAM

MODULE 3 - HEADACHE

Module 3 will take your understanding of headache, and in particular the disease migraine, to a whole new level. Learn about the myriad of neurological signs and symptoms that accompany this condition and how you can play a front line role in patient management. This Module delves even more deeply into the neurology of chiropractic to enhance your clinical thinking and equip you with tools of assessment.

Headache pain is the third most common reason why a patient will come to see you. But some of these patients will have sinister pathologies causing their symptoms. Are you comfortable deciding who is suitable for your care?

How often does a brain tumour present with headache? Or is it more likely to show up with other signs and symptoms first?

Do you ever consider that a patient might have temporal arteritis or acute glaucoma when they tell you about their headache? After all, both of these may cause blindness if you make the wrong judgement call. Can you distinguish between these pathologies and primary headaches?

Are you familiar with the latest research that links atrial fibrillation with the visual aura of migraine? Or aware that these patients have a higher risk of cardioembolic stroke?

Do you always consider the genetic predisposition that your migraine-without-aura patients have to vertebral artery dissection? How does this affect your choice of adjustment technique? In fact, it is your migraine patients that have the greatest risk of suffering a post-manipulation stroke. Do you understand why?

As a chiropractor it might seem obvious that a neck problem can cause a headache. But how exactly does this occur? What makes a migraineur a migraineur, and how does it affect the nervous system beyond the obvious head pain? The biggest trap in managing migraine is thinking that it is just a spine problem. Migraine is a complex neurological disease with many autonomic features, most of which you are probably unaware of.

Learn how to thoroughly assess the migraine patient and determine the optimum course of care for each individual. Migraine patients need lifelong management and you can be the expert in their care. This Module will show you all of this and more. So join Dr Matthew Long for an inspiring weekend that will change how you think and how you practice.
SOPHISTICATED DIAGNOSIS
BECOME A TRUE EXPERT IN HEADACHE
In this Module we will look at how a migraineur's brain is different. You will come to understand the abnormal brain chemistry that makes them hypersensitive to most stimuli - whether external or internal. You will appreciate that migraine is a 'continuum disorder', sharing the same neurological underpinnings as irritable bowel, depression, restless legs syndrome and temporomandibular disorder. Furthermore, we will investigate the concept of 'paediatric migraine equivalents' - a phenomenon in which children exhibit all manner of symptoms such as vertigo or abdominal pain, instead of headache.

During this weekend you will learn how migraine, tension-type headache and cervicogenic headache differ, and the specific management strategies that work best for each patient type. We will consider the role of adjustments in managing headache, and learn when you should, and shouldn't, adjust the neck. We shall also examine the science supporting the role of supplementation in headache management. Does any of it make a difference?

Finally, we will look at how you should explain your approach to a patient's GP, so that they understand what you are actually doing.
