When chronic migraines or headaches aren’t responding to treatment, they deserve a closer look.
At Pasadena Pain Management, I use the latest diagnostic technology to closely examine the musculoskeletal system of the head, neck, and jaw to find any signs of the inflamed areas that can lead to chronic headaches or migraines.
How We Determine the Causes of Chronic Migraines
Our diagnostic approach includes the delicate nerves and ligaments that run through the head and jaw —strong or repetitive forces (like a car accident or misaligned teeth) can often throw the whole system out of balance.
And just like an old athletic injury or bad back, over time the imbalanced area can radiate pain to the surrounding tissue, often causing chronic migraine-like symptoms.
Lasting Headache and Migraine Treatment
If the examination process indicates headaches are being caused by bite force imbalances, our TruDenta pain management system can help.
As TruDenta-trained professional, I have years of experience working with the delicate musculature of the jaw, neck, and head. It’s the ideal background to implement TruDenta’s process of progressive rehabilitation and physical therapy.
How the TruDenta Therapy Process Works
Each treatment plan is tailored to address the individual patient’s symptoms, and includes the use of several FDA-cleared, painless technologies, including:
- low-level cold laser
- trigger point manipulation.
Different symptoms necessitate from one to twelve therapies, each one hour long and completed weekly.
With these easy and painless tests, I can see what’s causing your headache symptoms. I can also pinpoint other related areas of mouth health, muscle health, tooth-related issues, and other potential problem areas that will be treated during your TruDenta therapy.
Only TruDenta dentists, like me, use this unique combination of assessment technology and education that often leads to immediate symptom resolution for patients.
