Headaches and migraines can severely limit your concentration and activity levels and are among the most common disorders of the nervous system. These include Tension Type headaches, Chronic daily headaches, Menstrual Migraine and migraine with or without Aura.


Often patients need to take strong pain relief which affects their daily quality of life and ability to function effectively even further.

Finally there is another treatment option available in New Zealand!

Research has clearly shown that all headache and migraine sufferers have a sensitized lower brain stem and the cause lies within a dysfunction of the upper cervical spine.

Physiotherapists specifically trained in Watson Headache Diagnosis and treatment strategies are rare and this advanced approach identifies the exact problematic structure in the neck and corrects the dysfunction removing the root cause for your headache.
