Are you ready to elevate your treatment of headache conditions? Advancements have been made in the field of migraine care! Don’t be left behind - ensure your patients are receiving the best treatment possible by learning a neurological and biopsychosocial approach to one of the most common conditions seen by RMTs. This two-day course offers a comprehensive overview of headache classifications, clarifies how to distinguish a migraine condition by using a thorough intake process and identifies contraindications and red flags to ensure a safe practice. Common medications, comorbid illnesses associated with migraine, triggers, symptoms, common misdiagnosis and mistreatment of migraine disease will be covered in-depth in a lecture format. Treatment considerations by age group will be discussed with an emphasis on pediatric and end of life care. Review of common misconceptions around migraine and myths will be openly discussed by the class, with latest research and practices being presented so therapists can leave feeling confident in their knowledge and communication skills. A large portion of hands-on learning will include intake skills, clinical impression determination, palpation skills specific to migraine disease, treatment techniques and therapeutic exercises. Be prepared to immediately elevate your skills as a massage therapist to treat specific migraine conditions – your patients deserve more than a general headache treatment!
