I Hate Headaches! Makes Debut at IACA Meeting in San Francisco

I Hate Headaches! LLC is a new company dedicated to helping chronic headache sufferers find crucial information about neuromuscular dental solutions for eliminating migraines and other types of headaches.

Patients suffering from chronic headaches often find only partial relief through visits with medical doctors and neurologists. Some patients continue to suffer with headaches in spite of CT (CAT) scans, MRI’s and other testing. Many patients are treated with a multitude of drugs only to find minimal improvement or worse, suffer from severe side effects due to the medications. I HATE Headaches’ new website http://wwwihateheadaches.com will provide crucial information to these patients to improve the quality of their lives.

The Great Imposter is the moniker that is often given to patients suffering from neuromuscular problems centering on the TM Joint. Patients with TMJ disorders or TMD can often find answers they have been searching for in Neuromuscular Dentistry. The TM Joints are the Jaw Joints and often have clicking, popping or grinding noises associated with jaw movement. Referred pain from the jaw muscles is common and masquerades as sinus pain or headaches; retro-orbital pain (or pain behind the eyes); ear pain (or otalgia); stuffiness in the ears (or Eustacian tube dysfunction); and even tooth aches or throat pain.

Neuromuscular dentistry uses diagnostic tools that allow evaluation of the nerves, muscles, bones, joints, habits, teeth and bite to determine if they all work in synchrony.

A major problem is that many patients are unaware that they can be helped through neuromuscular dentistry. Dr. Ira L Shapira LLC has created I Hate Headaches! in conjunction with Page 1 Solutions, a top website designer known for their ability to bring important information to first page search results.

Dr. Shapira has also worked with Page 1 to develop http://www.ihatecpap.com. I hate CPAP! LLC has become the premier site for patients looking for information about sleep apnea and snoring and the use of comfortable oral appliances to treat obstructive sleep apnea. I Hate CPAP helps patients find convenient Sleep Apnea Dentists trained in Dental Sleep Medicine. I Hate Headaches will use a similar format to help patients not only find the information they so desperately need but also connect them to neuromuscular dentists in their vicinity.

The IACA (International Academy of Comprehensive Aesthetics) is one of two major groups promoting advancements in Neuromuscular Dentistry. The second group is ICCMO, The International College of CranioMandibular Orthopedics. The Las Vegas Institute, headed by Dr. Bill Dickerson, has become a primary educator in the field of neuromuscular dentistry and works closely with Myotronics, a company founded by Dr. Barney Jankelson, the Father of Neuromuscular Dentistry. Myotronics is a leader in making instrumentation for neuromuscular dentistry.

Page 1 is also converting Sleep and Health Journal into an online journal for patients and is bringing seven years of archives online. Sleep and Health Journal is @ www.sleepandhealth.com and is dedicated to bringing important issues concerning sleep to the public.
