March 17, 2010 - PRLog -- The majority of headaches are caused by the trigeminal nerve and the muscles and tissues that it innervates.  This includes numerous types of migraines and tension-type headaches.  The use of Neuromuscular Dentistry has been "overwhelmingly successful" in treating migraines according to Dr Barry Cooper in an article recently published in Cranio Journal.

The majority of pain comes from the muscles and small areas in unhealthy muscles called trigger points.  These are the same trigger points that massage therapists and physical therapists work to eliminate.  Dr Shapira utilizes a special vapocoolant spray and specific stretches to break-up or eliminate these trigger points.  At his initial interview he prefers to see patients when they are having headaches, neck pain or facial pain because it allows him the opportuniy to instantly relieve the pain.  If he can alleviate the pain it means that the majority of pain is myofascial in orgin and will respond well to physical medicine therapies and neuromuscular dental  treatment.  

The first step in any treatment is diagnostic.  In neuromuscular dentistry the diagnostic orthotic can often partially or completely relieve the pain.  The use of vapocoolant spray and instant relief of pain can excite patients who have not had success with other treatments.
