Headache and Migraine Specialised Treatment

Physiotherapy for Cervicogenic headaches is a well-established component of physiotherapy, however treatment for other headaches such as migraines and tension type headaches are for many, outside their scope of practice. However, an extremely successful physiotherapy treatment approach has been developed in Australia. The Watson Headache ® Approach was established in South Australia by Dr Dean Watson, a physiotherapist who has specialised in treating headaches and migraines for over 30 years and completed his PHD in headache and migraine management. I have been fortunate to complete extensive training with Dean in Australia and I worked in the foremost specialist headache and migraine centre in Melbourne Australia with the mentoring of Roger O’ Toole, an extremely experienced and knowledgeable headache consultant. I am really excited to bring this physiotherapy technique to Sligo and to Ireland.
