Webinar: Headaches & Migraines - Diagnostic Workshop & Evidence Base

“A great wind is blowing and that either gives you imagination...or a headache.” – Catherine the Great


How can you refine the skills and knowhow for safe evaluation and accurate diagnosis of headaches? Find out in this introduction by Mrs Helena Bridge, an experienced osteopath and lecturer currently completing a Master's in Pain and Headache Management. She will be clarifying head pain referral patterns, headache causation and classification, and then interactively facilitating discussions on when to refer patients on for further investigation.


Drawing on recent advances in headache science, Helena will be using a mechanism-based approach to explain the physiological changes which cause the headaches we commonly see in practice, and then looking at the evidence base for our treatments.


Helena will also cover standard classification of headaches which should be managed in primary care, covering current guidelines on diagnostic workup and treatment methods, and touching on psychological co-morbidities which affect our success rates in manual therapy.


Lastly, there will be an interactive headache diagnosis game, followed by an open discussion of answers and a Q&A session. 


We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' on the day of the event.

Introduction to headaches in primary care:

Worldwide studies suggest that 7- 11% of patients attending MSK clinics suffer from head and facial pain, yet there is little structured undergraduate headache education among our professions. Helena Bridge and her teaching team are actively working to address this education gap.


In 2014 Helena embarked on an integrated MSc Pain course at the University of Edinburgh, which incorporated a PGCE in Clinical Management of Headache Disorders to offset the lack of CPD courses on this subject. 


For the last 6 years, Helena has taught in the student clinic at the ESO (European School of Osteopathy), where, three years later, she then founded and led the weekly ESO Headache Clinic (www.eso.ac.uk/eso-clinic/our-clinics/headache-clinic/). 


OPHM (Osteopaths for Progress in Headaches & Migraines)

In early 2016 Helena also helped found and co-chair OPHM, which has grown into a busy multidisciplinary teaching group.

Attendees are warmly invited to apply to join the OPHM facebook group (http://www.ophm.org). Our ongoing scientific news and case-sharing debates flow freely in a mutually respectful atmosphere of shared learning. We look forward to welcoming all physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths and their students onto this inclusive forum.
