HEADACHES, MIGRAINES, FIBROMYALGIA AND TMJ DISORDERS

There is an intimate cooection between TMD and Fibromyalgia and Tension-type and Muscle contraction headaches. These can also serve as triggers for many types of migraines and chronic daily headaches.

The connection is the Trigeminal Nerve that controls blood flow to the brain and contributes over half of all input to the brain an central nervous system from the body.

It is generally recognized by neuroscientists and neurologists that almost all headaches and migraines are primarily trigeminal in nature or influenced by the trigeminal nerve.

Neuromuscular dentistry may be the best prevention for these problems that frequently relate to sleep disorders as well.

Neuromuscular dentistry my be the ideal method to improve the your quality of lyour life without excessive medication. Both chiropractic and osteopathic medicine depend on the jaw for stability of the spine and holistic and or alternative health care methods like massage have longer lasting results when postural correction and neurofeedback from the trigemnal nerve are use as a stabilizing force rather than a continuing irritation that prevents healing and interferes with quality of life.
