Headaches and Migraines

What causes it?

It is a common misconception to believe that headaches/migraines are caused by the expansion of blood vessels. What has actually been shown to be the root cause of the disorder is an overly sensitised brain stem!

Why treatments often fail

Medical experts suggest treatments for headaches and migraines often fail due to the diagnosis being incomplete or inaccurate. A cervicogenic (neck-related) headache treated as a migraine is a recipe for disaster! 

Thankfully Dean Watson a world leading expert in headaches has developed the Watson Headache approach to resolve headaches and migraines with unparalleled diagnostic accuracy. This scientifically validated approach identifies the structures responsible for the symptoms of the headache or migraine and uses the specialised technique of “reproduce and solve” to de-sensitise the overly sensitised brain stem.    


  1. That reproduction of headache when examining the upper cervical structures is inappropriate and is to be avoided.
  • Incorrect! In fact, the reproduction (and resolution) of symptoms is critical to find out what is going on. Otherwise it’s simply a guessing game.
