The following paragraph is taken from the MiRx website:
“The MiRx Protocol is a treatment program designed to cure headaches, facial pain, and head pain. The protocol is made up of two parts. The first stage of treatment stops the reaction of the nervous system and alleviates the headache pain. This is referred to as the medical component. The second stage of the MiRx Protocol treats and rehabilitates the underlying condition, which is the physical component. These two combined can effectively eliminate the conditions causing your headache or face pain. These two components work together to provide long-term headache relief.”

The Trigeminal Nerve is is a primary culprit in almost all headaches whether they are vascular, muscular or neurogenic. Irritation of the trigeminal nerve or Trigeminal Neuralgia is one of the most severe forms of pain patients experience. The ice cream headache is an example of how extreme cold can effect the sensory branches of the Trigeminal nerve and create intense pain. The ice cream headache or brain freeze has been called asphenopalatine ganglion neuralgia but it is actually pain coming from the maxillary branches of the trigeminal nerve.

Noxious input to the trigeminal nerve can cause create central nervous system changes that predispose patients to all types of headaches. TMJ disorders are also connected to the Trigeminal Nerve and all types of headaches. The reason Neuromuscular orthotics are so effective in eliminating and preventing all types of headaches is that they reduce noxious input from the trigeminal nerves. These nerves innervate the sinuses and are almost always involved in all sinus headaches.

Treatment of TMJ disorders would be the physical component of MiRx protocol.
