Chicago: Head And Neck Pain Management

The trigeminal Nerve is a key component in the management of head and neck pain. Neuromuscular Dentistry provided "overwhelming success" according to Dr Barry Cooper in a recent CRANIO JOURNAL ARTICLE.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Mar. 24, 2010 - Patients suffering from chronic head and neck pain frequently find that treatment only provides temporary relief.  A major reason for lack of lasting pain relief is that correction of postural issues, muscle issues and pain issues from the trigeminal nerve are not addressed.  The trigeminal nerve is a contributing if not major factor in almost all head and neck pain.

A new resource for Chicago patients suffering from migraines, neck pain,  chronic daily headaches (CDH), episodic tension-type headaches (ETTH), Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction (MPD) and Temporomandibular disorders(TMJ, TMD) is available at http://www.ihateheadaches.org.  The majority of all headaches are mediated by the Trigeminal Nervous system and the site explains how correction of noxious input from the Trigeminal nerve can alleviate or eliminate a large percentage of headaches with many varying diagnosis.

The position of the lower jaw has major implications for head posture.  Patients with forward head posture rarely have lasting relief of head and neck pain.  Forward head posture is actually forward neck posture with pathologically excessive rotation at the atlas and axis joints.  It predisposes patients not just to head and neck pain but also to low back pain and numbness and pain in the hands and arms.  It is frequently found in patients with undiagnosed sleep apnea.

The I HATE Headaches site was created by Dr Ira L Shapira a Gurnee Dentist well known for his treatment of  Sleep Apnea with oral appliances and his utilization of Neuromuscular Dentistry to improve the quality of his patients lives.  The primary causes of morning headaches are TMJ disorders (TMD) and Sleep Apnea.  An excellent article in Sleep and Health journal "SUFFER NO MORE:  DEALING WITH THE GREAT IMPOSTER" Discusses how patients suffer chronic pain due to lack of proper diagnosis. The article is a must read for all patients with chronic headaches, migraines or TMJ disorders.  Suffer No More can be viewed at http://www.sleepandhealth.com/story/suffer-no-more-dealin...

Dr Shapira recently created Chicagoland Dental Sleep Medicine Associates for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea without CPAP.  He created the website http://www.ihatecpap.com to help patients who have sleep apnea and do not tolerate CPAP treatment.  Dr Shapira is now seeing patients with headaches, migraines and TMJ disorders at the Chicagoland Dental Sleep Medicne offices.

Patients tired of living with chronic head and neck  pain can contact to Dr Shapira  at 847-623-5530 .  Appointments are made for all offices at that number or patients can call Toll Free at 1-8-TM-JOINT
