New treatment for headache and migraine

Barry Kersten attended the 3 day Watson Headache® Institute, Level 1 Headache Course titled "The Role of C1-C3 Cervical Afferents in Primary Headache". The course was held on 14 April 2016, in Rijswijk, and presented by Dean H Watson, Australian Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. For further information, go to:

The course comprised 24 hours and was based on the Watson Headache® Approach, a protocol for the skilled assessment and management of the upper cervical (neck) spine in headache and migraine conditions. The Watson Headache® Approach is recognised as a scientifically researched method of examination and treatment.

The diagnostic accuracy of the Watson Headache® Approach is unparalleled. It can confirm if disorders in the upper neck are responsible for headache or migraine and determine the exact nature of the disorder as well as which spinal joints are involved. There is no guesswork and no cracking or manipulation. Its unique and powerful feature involves temporary reproduction and resolution (easing) of usual head pain. For further information, go to:
