Level 11 course in The Netherlands

Level 11 Course in Roermond, The Netherlands

Following on from the Level I course in Roermond, I presented an Advanced (Level II) course.

Level II is a two day course where delegates (primarily physiotherapists) are introduced to the recent research in relation to headache and migraine (which suggests that headache and migraine are not different conditions but are just different different expressions of the same condition) and also to the approach I have developed which not only confirms if a neck disorder is the source of headache or migraine but also which spinal segment is the cause.

After at least 6 months of using my approach, the course delegates are invited to attend a one day (Level II) course where the approach is revised, and importantly questions and issues are answered/discussed. I am pleased that these courses are always fully subscribed and often go on beyond 5.00 p.m.!

Whilst I examine and treat patients on both Level I & II courses, I have now been asked to present longer courses in which patients are examined and treated over a 2 week period ….. now that will be a ‘Master Class’!

Cheers

Supporting You, Along With Your Doctor

Determining the cause of your head pain and symptoms

Determining the cause of your head pain and symptoms

Supporting you, along with your doctor, in determining the cause of your head pain and symptoms is one of the goals of the Watson Headache Institute.

It also provides a network of highly trained practitioners who are dedicated to achieving a successful treatment outcome for headache and migraine sufferers.

If you have had medical tests such as an MRI, Cat Scan and X-ray which have proved negative, then before undertaking ongoing medication, a skilled examination of the neck is an important step to understanding the nature of your pain as precisely as possible.

Identifying whether you have any spinal segment involvement in your headache or migraine can be achieved by seeking the advice of a practitioner skilled in assessing the role of the neck in your headache or migraine pain.

If you would you like an Internationally Trained Practitioner to assist you with your Headache or Migraine pain please go to the home page and read the information under the heading of ‘Practitioner’.
