Poster for CE course for cervicogenic headaches.

Featured during the ABMP CE Summit: Headaches in April 2024, the new ABMP CE course, “Neuromuscular Considerations in Cervicogenic Headaches,” is now available in the ABMP Education Center to view and earn 1 CE hour. 

Course Description

Given the prevalence of headaches, it’s likely that seeing clients who present with headache pain will be a common occurrence for massage therapists. There are, however, multiple types of headaches with varying pathophysiological presentations.
