New CE Course: Structural Dynamics of Headache Pain

Poster for CE course Structural Dynamics of Headache Pain.

Featured during the ABMP CE Summit: Headaches in April 2024, the new ABMP CE course, “Structural Dynamics of Headache Pain,” is now available in the ABMP Education Center to view and earn 1 CE hour.

Course Description

Learn to take a Structural Dynamics approach to headache pain with Ann and Lynn Teachworth. Consider how more distal dynamics in the lower leg and pelvis impact the cervical vertebrae and head, learn a visceral component to neck tension and headache pain, and examine how poor structural relationships among the shoulders, cervical spine, and head contribute to the strain and compression that can lead to headaches. Learn myofascial approaches to improving these structural relationships and functional dynamics to assist clients with headache pain.
