After years of practicing Physiotherapy and treating many people with Headaches and Migraines, I’m truly aware how many patients lives are deeply impacted by the debilitating effects of regularly occurring headaches and migraines.
It is estimated globally 50 -75% adults 18-65 yrs have had headache in the last year, 30% of those report migrainous headache.
I’m sure that if you are visiting this web-page you too have exhausted the many different treatments available to treat your pain, headaches and migraines and often without success.
You have probably tried a number of the following, massage, acupuncture, meditation, conventional physiotherapy, swallowed dozens of vitamins and consumed countless numbers of different cocktails of drugs.
I have recently completed level 2 In the Watson Headache Approach with Dean Watson making me one of the most Qualified practitioners using this migraine and headache treatment on the Sunshine Coast.
Over 80% of all people who receive treatment have reported decreased intensity and less frequency of migraines and headache leading them to a much more normal lifestyle with a significant decreased dependence on medications.
With this approach we are able to treat a large cross section of headache and migraine sufferers, over years of clinical practice it has proven to be effective in the treatment of;
• Cervicogenic Headache
• Tension Type Headache
• Menstrual Headache
• Cluster or Suicidal Headache

“If headache or migraines are from your neck then Watson’s Headache Approach can help you. If your headaches or migraines swap sides ever, then your neck is the number one culprit until proven otherwise.”1. IF head pain starts on one side. Then swaps to the other side within the same episode
(and sometimes back again). However note that this doesn’t mean that if your head pain is
only ever on one side (‘side locked’), or if your head pain is completely symmetrical, that
your neck isn’t involved.
2. If your headaches move around from side to side episode to episode.
3. If your headache starts in your shoulder or neck before moving into your head.
4. If you experience neck pain or stiffness prior to or during your headache there is far
greater likely hood that your neck is involved (however you don’t need to have neck pain for
your neck to be an important cause of headache).
5. If your headache is triggered or caused by sustained or repetitive neck movements for
example sustained forwards bending as when sitting prolonged at a computer or driving.
6. The presence of headache after neck trauma or concussion once the period of injury or
concussive state has past.
7. If you have exhausted every other approach and looking for something new.
