A Tale of the Medical Practitioner and the Headache/Migraine Physiotherapist

October 11, 2009 by dean · Leave a Comment 

I have mentioned the importance of educating you the headache and migraine sufferer as to what we as physiotherapists have to offer. This reminded me of a physiotherapist in The Netherlands who has completed both of my Level I and Advanced Level II courses.

When he returned to do the Level II course he recounted how when he had gone back to his village after the Level I course he wrote to his local doctors. He explained to them that he had done a ‘Watson Headache Course’, and that he was interested in treating their headache patients.

He described that initially only a couple of headache and migraine patients were referred and when they got better, he was referred more and then as his good results continued …. and now his work is almost exclusively headache and migraine.

A good result and a receptive and enlightened medical practitioner!
