The potential involvement of the cervical spine in the manifestation of headaches can be challenging for even the most experienced rehabilitation professional because of closely integrated functional and neuromuscular connections. In this webinar recording, Dr. Rina Pandya unpacks key considerations when working with individuals with headache and neck pain. She introduces red flags, types of headaches and potential causes of headaches before exploring treatment options through case studies.


This webinar aims to introduce rehabilitation professionals to a clinical decision tree (thinking tree, or clinical pattern sheet) for the assessment and management of cervical dysfunction and headaches. The development and use of a thinking tree are demonstrated using clinical case studies.


This webinar recording consists of a 60-minute presentation, a short quiz and additional resources.

I found myself in a situation where I did not even have an assumption about diagnosis, and that only reaffirmed my desire to study. I greatly recommend this webinar, as it reveals valuable and memorable cases and information in general.

The facilitator was excellent! I learnt a lot from this course and gained a different perspective and the differential diagnosis to consider during history taking and assessment.
