Head & Jaw Clinic

Headaches & Migraine

Headaches and Migraine are debilitating for any of us who have had the occasional problem. To live with them monthly, weekly, daily is almost unbearable.
Traditionally, headaches and migraines have been treated with drugs by the Medical profession with no permanent benefit and increased dependency. After a period of constant headaches herself, Tania met Dean Watson, founder of the Watson
Headache Institute and having great relief began a journey to learn more about the assessment and treatment of Cervicogenic Headache.

Tania is now a Certified Watson Headache Practitioner and Amanda has done further training, completing
Level 2 competency through Dean Watson PHD, Watson Headache Institute. We are lucky to have the world renowned and recognised leader in the assessment and management of Headaches originate right here in Adelaide.
For the effective management of headaches and migraines people generally require up to 5 visits over 3 weeks and then at less frequent intervals after that until the 
headache or migraine has gone or improved to a manageable level. This investment
in your long term management of your headaches; if you think we can help with the treatment of your headaches or migraines, call the clinic to make an appointment.

Vertigo & Dysequilibrium

Have you had:

  • dizziness or vertigo

  • reduced balance

  • "fogginess" in the head

  • concussion 

  • falls or a bump to the head

  • "jiggly" vision

  • reduced concentration?

You might benefit from an assessment by Melissa Smith, our "Dizzy Physio".  

Temporo-Mandibular Dysfunction

TMD is any problem that is associated with the Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ).  

The most common symptom is pain in the jaw joint, but can also include:

  • clicking or popping

  • muscle spasm or tenderness

  • bite & alignment problems

  • headaches behind or around the eyes

  • pain that radiates to the ear, temples, neck or upper shoulder

  • grinding

  • locked or stiff joint

  • facial deformity

Jaw problems do not go away on their own so please call and ask to book an appointment with Kate if you believe you could benefit from her expertise. ​

Post-Concussion Syndrome

Post-Concussion Syndrome can include one or more of the following symptoms :

  • headache, dizziness

  • amnesia

  • unsteady gait

  • altered behaviours and moods

  • Cognitive impairment or reduced concentration

  • Sleep/wake disturbances

It is recommended by the International Consensus Statement of Concussion in Sport that individuals suffering a concussion receive Active rehabilitation.  

Rehabilitation is vital for quicker recovery and return to sport/work/school, and helps prevent the complications of multiple concussions.  Our physiotherapists are able to help diagnose Post Concussive Syndrome, and commence you on your path to recovery.

Appointments with our Head & Jaw clinic are an extended consult, usually an hour long.  

Please let staff know when you book which service you are requiring.
