I HATE HEADACHES is dedicated to helping patients learn about the benefits of Neuromuscular Dentistry (NMD) and to assist patients in finding a neuromuscular dentist. Patients with migraines, Tension-type headaches and chronic daily headaches can frequently find help in eliminating and avoiding these headaches with neuromuscular dental treatment. NMD is also used to treat Temporomandibular disorders, TMD or TM Joint problems.
These problems are often hard to pin down to specific causes and patients frequently recieve numerous diagnostic tests and medication in an attempt to control their pain. Neuromuscular Dentistry can be the answer for many patients. Information on headache treatment with Neuromuscular Dentistry can be found at http://www.ihateheadaches.org
Morning headaches are frequently caused by TMJ disorders, bruxism and sleep apnea. While these were once considered separate and unique disorders it now appears that they are all symptoms of the same underlying anatomical, physical and physiologic disturbance to the masticatory system. The NHLBI report on “Cardiovascular and Sleep Related Consequences of Temporomandibular Disorders” (http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/meetings/workshops/tmj_wksp.pdf) is a must read article for patients with sleep disorders, TMJ disorders, migraines or other headaches.
