Dr. Craig Moore, Chiropractic, Headaches

Dr. Craig Moore, Chiropractic, HeadachesDr. Craig Moore discusses the role of chiropractors in the management of headaches. Some areas of discussion we touch upon include the societal impact and costs associated with headaches; prevalence of headaches in the community; prevalence of headache in chiropractic clinical settings; why do people turn to chiropractors; current level of evidence for chiropractic treatment of different headache types; what do the headache guidelines recommend for each headache; what should a chiropractor consider when examining a headache patient (history and examination).

Dr. Craig Moore is the director of a multi-disciplinary allied-health clinic in Crows Nest, Sydney. His clinic focus is toward the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal disorders and in headache disorders in particular (migraine, tension-type headache, cervicogenic headache).

Dr. Moore has completed a Masters of Clinical Trials Research and is currently enrolled at the University of Technology Sydney, doing a PhD in Public Health – focused on the chiropractic management of headache disorders. As a founding member of the Australian Chiropractic Research Network (ACORN) he has a strong interest in supporting the development of chiropractic research through the utilization of this practice-based research network project. He has numerous publications in the scientific literature in such journals as Spine, BMC Neurology, JMPT, BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders and Headache to name a few. Dr. Moore is also a CARL Fellow!
