This course, NMT Techniques for Headaches, is taught using a variety of teaching
methods including lecture, power point, hands on demonstrations, supervised

assessment. It covers, what NMT is, history of NMT, anatomy, physiology, functions
and dysfunctions of muscles, what a Trigger Point (TrP) is, different types of Trigger
Points, how they form and how to treat them. The HEADACHE seminar will also focus
on addressing the consequences of physiological conditions that can cause Trigger
Points in the neck muscles, which refer to the head. Students will learn 7 principles
that can contribute to pain in the body and how it relates to headaches.
Upon completion, students will be evaluated and tested to demonstrate their learning
proficiency and skills by practical, hands-on application of techniques learned.
A manual with muscle images containing trigger point patterns, symptoms and causes
of trigger points, treatment techniques, information about contraindications, postural
assessment information, charts and measuring devices will be provided.
