This personal experience gives Dr. Peterson a unique perspective on the management of migraines and other headaches. She believes in patient participation over patient passivity; informing and involving patients is the first step to true wellness. The individualized headache management program incorporates education, counseling, medication, and referrals to other medical specialists when appropriate.

She has also contributed  the "Differential Diagnosis of Headache" section, published in two editions of Chiropractic Management of Spine-Related Disorders, and a chapter on whiplash and headache in an upcoming book on Whiplash Disorders. She speaks on the subject of migraine and other headaches to hospitals, employers, physicians and nurses, as well as lay audiences.

Dr. Peterson is often asked to consult on the subject of headaches and migraines in a variety of business and clinical settings.
