Jaw like a plane?

Head and neck pain and discomfort can run a wide range, being a simple nag to severe radiating pain. These pains can be different from day to day, side to side, or up and down. These variations can cause much confusion for all as to where they stem from and how to fix them.

In my practice I see many head and neck and myofacial pain patients who had thought that the pain might have been migraines; sinus and or tension headaches and so on. Most of these sufferers have been seeking medical advice for many years, actually decades in most cases. Most often for a large number of them x-rays, MRI’s and CAT Scans report nothing wrong. Since there is no definitive diagnosis, there is no treatment other than medications. As a matter of fact, there is a whole industry banking and betting on these patients accepting that they are going to be miserable all their life and continue to take these meds as their only relief. It is also my observation in meeting with these patients that they feel  they are not being listened to or believed by their families, friends and doctors.
