Headaches, Migraines & TMJ
New Treatment Solutions for Headaches, Migraines & TMJ
Consider Your Neck
Physicians and dentists have known for years that the cervical spine can refer pain into the head, jaw & face,causing a multitude of ails from headaches & migraines to vertigo or sinus issues. We have been certified in new advanced treatments that can address these chronic issues, sometimes in as little as just a few visits& teach you how to keep them at bay for life.
This revolutionary new approach was developed in response to a growing body of scientific studies. Our team has been certified by the American Headache Institute, which was founded to provide research, education & resources to physicians seeking new methods of treatment for their patients with head, TMJ pain, facial pain & other types of symptoms stemming from the neck.
In applying four specific areas of practice, many patients are able to maintain self-care to last a lifetime:
Pain Relieving Exercise Program
Re-education & Training
10 Zones of Centralization Analysis
The cervical spine symptoms are siloed into ten specific zones, starting with the mouth and ending in the suboccipital & upper cervical spine. If your symptoms are stemming from an issue in the neck, we can identify & abolish them zone by zone in a methodical, predictive manner,centered around the cervical spine.
This methodology allows us to watch your face & head symptoms dissipate in a pre-determined & orderly fashion. In observing your centralizing symptoms, we are then able to create a treatment that is both corrective & specific to you.
On your first visit, we perform an in-depth examination using a series of questions that are designed to identify the involvement of the cervical spine. Using subtle movements and various neck positions, our treatment program is capable of bringing about a surprising decrease or abolishment of symptoms in as few as 1-3 visits.
"Treatment involving exercise, manual therapy, educational interventions and patient self-efficacy are more effective than alternative strategies for patients with neck pain."
