Dr. 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!
