... by people affected by headache and migraine as well as health care professionals, third party insurers and medical referrers who have contacted Watson Headache® looking for someone to help them with information and/or assessment and treatment.

Provision of this list of Practitioners by the Watson Headache® Institute
Continuing professional development courses involve training in Watson Headache® Diagnosis Treatment Protocol, more popularly known as the ‘Watson Headache® Approach’. The key to this approach is skilfully identifying whether cervicogenic (neck) dysfunction is relevant in a person’s headache or migraine condition.
Practitioners trained in the Watson Headache® Approach are located in 22 countries. Whilst many more Practitioners have been trained by the Dean Watson via the Watson Headache® Institute than are on this interim list (approximately 3,000 practitioners have been trained Internationally by Dean, 650 of whom are in Australia), details are not available for a variety of reasons. One reason is because courses have been hosted by a third party. Therefore full lists of all Practitioners trained have not been made available to the Watson Headache® Institute for provacy reasons.
Another is that at this stage the practitioners who have joined an ongoing program, which includes the opportunity to communicate with Dean on a weekly basis, have known they would be included on a Practitioner Directory in the near future. They have been advised they have been included on this list for TODAY SHOW viewers.
A substantial Practitioner Directory is being built by the Watson Headache® Institute's web development team at the moment. We anticipate this will be available for reference at the beginning of May. Please revisit this page and we will provide a redirect button for you to click to access this new initiative which has been in the planning stage.
