Finally Understand Headaches & Learn How Physiotherapy Can be Effective for Patients with Headaches

Headaches are so prevalent in patients we often don’t even consider them as something that can be treated. Patients often take it as something they have to live with and use medication for relief.

However, research has shown that physiotherapy & manual therapy is more effective for different forms of headaches than usual care +/- medication. And yet, many clinics don’t offer any help to this huge patient group as they often lack knowledge & skills.

In our Online Course ”
Headache Treatment in Clinical Practice” by top headache researcher René Castien from the Vrije University of Amsterdam we help you to become an expert in the clinical treatment of different forms of headaches.

René has currently published 28 papers on headaches and has taught thousands of manual therapy MSc students at SOMT University Amersfoort & Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He can do exactly the same for you from the comfort of your home – so you can become a headache expert too!


Diagnose & Treat All Common Types of Headache

Screening, diagnosing, and treating patients with headaches is a challenging, but highly rewarding task we are confronted with as therapists.

Many therapists either don’t know how physiotherapy can be highly effective for headaches or are overwhelmed by the complexity of patients suffering from chronic headaches.

When is a headache a red flag? Is it related to the neck, tension-type headache, or migraine? How to assess those forms? What treatment techniques should I use? How are headaches influenced by psychosocial and lifestyle issues?

If you’re unsure about the questions above, you will absolutely love this online course.

Sadly Knowledge & Skills about Headaches in Physiotherapists is Scarce

Not many curricula of physio schools/universities spend much time on the pathophysiology, assessment & management of headaches.

  1. Great course


    Good didactic qualities of the teacher with clearly noticeable theoretical knowledge

  2. Detailed and Very Informative


    This course is ideal to expand one’s knowledge on headaches and how to effectively treat them.
    The instructor is extremely knowledgeable and provides very practical information, easily applicable in the clinic.
    I would highly recommend taking this course to anyone interested in becoming an expert at treating headaches.

  3. Quality course


    I highly recommend this course. You will get many tips of articles who are relevant for diagnostic and treatment of the most common headaches and migraine. Castien is also a great teacher, and explain the stuff in a good way. He has also informative videos.

  4. informatieve cursus


    Leuke en interessante hoofdpijn cursus waarbij gebruik gemaakt wordt van up to date wetenschappelijke onderzoeken. Er wordt een mooie afwisseling gemaakt tussen theorie en praktijk. Na deze cursus kun je goed onderscheid maken tussen verschillende soorten hoofdpijn en weet je wat de beste behandelmethode is.

  5. Great learning experience


    First time doing a full online formation on a subject and it was amazing, great way to move through the different topics.
    The assessment and quizz keeps you accountable and you have a great, practical tool that you can apply directly into your practice like next day in.

    Highly recommended

  6. Quality guaranteed


    First time using Physiotutors; a very user friendly way of learning. An in depth theoretic background to start off with, before continuing to a more practical approach. After every chapter, you’re invited to do a little quiz and thus test yourself. Highly applicable course for your practice.

  7. Good insight on headache treatment


    First time doing a course with physiotutors.
    I would say the content is very useful, interesting and up to date.
    The only downside on this course was for some videos in the practice section, the sound wasn’t working. However, the videos were fairly straight forward without the sound so it was fine to understand the content, so it wasn’t much of an issue to have no sound.
    For some section, it didn’t include the latest research but it’s difficult to constantly update the content of a course when new research is published everyday.
    One very good point was the fact that the teacher critics some of the studies that were published so you feel that it’s not just reading the conclusion.

  8. An experts guide through the headache landscape!


    No better tutor than René Castien to introduce us to the fascinating field of the treatment rationale and possibilities for physio- and manual therapists. Uptodate, for so far as possible in this fast moving field, practical and with a good deal of treatment options that are both evidence based and with a good deal of clinical expertise. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and was pleasantly surprised by the clear and methodogical presentation of the material. I can highly recommend this course to any clinician engaged with or interested in the treatment of patients with headache. A no nonsense, applicable and practical course!

  9. a lot of information!


    a lot of good informations, articles.
    A really good help to improve your comprehension and your practice

  10. Great course


    Well-structured course with lots of evidence-based material.
    Theory is well explained and you get a lot of additional reading material.
    I would like to see improved quality of the explanations in the video portion of the course.
