Dr Craig Moore
Chiropractor, PhD candidiate
Since becoming a chiropractor Craig completed a Masters of Clinical Trials Research at the University of Sydney and is near the completion of his PhD at the University of Technology Sydney. His PhD study is focussed on the management of headaches and migraine by chiropractors from a public health and epidemiological perspective. His headache research has been published in journals including Spine and BMC Neurology. Craig is a Fellow of the Chiropractic Academy of Research Leadership program (CARL) and a member of the International Headache Society (IHS).
Dr Peter Tuchin
Peter Tuchin has been involved with Macquarie University for over 25 years and is currently an Associate Professor.

Peter has been President of Chiropractic and Osteopathic College of Australia (COCA), has had over 30 papers accepted for WFC Congresses, and received several international research awards. Peter also conducted one of the largest RCT’s on chiropractic and migraine to date (JMPT 2000)
Dr Dean Watson
Following completion of his Masters Research (1991) in which he investigated natural head posture and cranio cervical flexor performance, Dr Dean H Watson (PhD), Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, has treated headache and migraine exclusively. From his 26000 hours of clinical experience with over 8000 patients the Watson Headache® Approach (a non-high velocity thrust technique approach) has evolved to become internationally recognised for its unparalleled diagnostic accuracy. The Approach is based on a previously unrecognised clinical pattern and reproduction and resolution of typical head pain during examination of the upper cervical spine to determine relevancy in headache and migraine. The primary finding of Dean’s PhD, completed in 2016, was that reproduction and resolution of typical head pain in migraineurs DE-sensitises the brainstem - the underlying disorder in migraine and in primary headache conditions generally. This is the first time a manual cervical intervention has been shown to affect the very core of the migraine process and supports the Watson Headache® Approach as the most powerful clinical approach to ascertain relevancy of C1-3 afferents; temporary reproduction alone is not sufficient. Since 1994 Dean has presented 3 - 4 day courses and organized symposia (Watson Headache® Institute) and has been a platform presenter, both nationally and internationally. He continues as a Clinical Consultant (Watson Headache® Clinic), is an invited Lecturer at the University of South Australia and remains a passionate Educationalist. Dean has also been interviewed on national television and print media on numerous occasions about the headache and migraine condition.

Dr Roberta Chow
Medical Doctor, PhD
Roberta is a world leading clinical practitioner and PhD in the field of laser therapy for pain management. Originally a general practitioner in private practice, Dr. Chow is focussed solely on pain management and has used laser therapy to treat patients since 1988.

Her further studies have included a Master of Applied Science and Grad Dip Pain Management (Sydney Uni). In addition to her clinical experience Dr. Chow is a published researcher, author and sought after speaker in her field. Her 2009 Lancet paper “Efficacy of low-level laser therapy in the management of neck pain” was in the top 20 downloaded papers from PubMed in 2010. She also sat on the Steering Committee of the National Pain Strategy 2010 – a federal government initiative to combat pain as an epidemic problem in Australia. Dr. Chow co-authored and co-edited the book “Pain: The Person, The Science, The Clinical Interface” in 2015 and in 2017 she was awarded the Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the 2017 Australia Day honours for her work in pain management and laser therapy.
