Migraine treatment and treatment of daily headaches offers patients new hope for a better quality of life. Neuromuscular Dentistry can be the key to headache elimination.
Dec. 20, 2009 - PRLog -- Migraines and chronic daily headaches gradually erode all aspects of your life.  Personal realtionships fall to the wayside or are strained to the breaking point as life is ruled by th incessant and increasing pain.  Patients " hate headaches" an that is where the name of the I HATE ( website originated.  

Living with headaches can be so difficult that patients fall into deep depressions and can even become suicidal. Their support systems falter because they do not have a visible illness or injury.  They live with severe guilt over the damage they feel the cause to family and friends and wonder if everyone wouldn't be better off without them.  Patients are frequently ignored by their physicians or are treated like addicts seeking a fix.  Multiple ER visits are sometimes the only coping mechanism available.

Neuromuscular Dentistry can frequently give patients a new lease on life. Living with  chronic pain is difficult, not just for the headache patients but for their families as well.  Drug regimens to prevent and reduce headache frequency are at best only partially effective and the side effects can be too severe for long term therapy.  A recent study showed that Topomax and Botox  helped significantly less that half of patients a 50% reduction in pain.  Even with treatment these patients are still suffering and dealing with a poor quality of life.

Neuromuscular dental techniques allows either drug free treatment, reduction in medication use and/or the combination of drug treatment and TMD therapy .  An excellent article on TMD disorders and headache "SUFFER NO MORE:  DEALING WITH THE GREAT IMPOSTER"  can be found at in Sleep and Health Journal.  The same Journal also has an excellent article on Neuromuscular Dental  (  treatment philosophy.  Migraine treatment and tension-type headache treatment frequently allows patients to live pain free without migraine medication
