Headache and Migraine Treatment
Fort Collins, CO
If you are one of the many who suffer endlessly from chronic headaches and migraines, there are new treatment options available to you. Today we understand better the role that the mouth, jaw and improper bite alignment plays in the cause and frequency of headaches. Here at Fort Collins Headache Center, we approach migraines and headaches from many angles to restore your quality of life. We understand that headaches can be debilitating, wrecking your daily life and ruining your ability to concentrate. After a thorough, advanced examination of your symptoms, we can determine exactly what is causing your chronic headaches and migraines and assemble a successful treatment plan.
Fort Collins Headache Center provides care to residents of Fort Collins and the surrounding region, and has experience in craniofacial problems that can result in moderate to severe migraines and chronic headaches. By using TruDenta, our proprietary, cutting-edge system, to analyze the head and neck for bite issues and other problems, we are able to gauge many different neuromuscular forces and isolate the problem. While some studies say that up to 80 percent of all headaches are dental related, we are able to precisely determine the issue that is behind your symptoms. Our FDA-approved system gives us the ability to evaluate the head, neck, ears and jaw to find the direct cause of your pain and the resulting complications.
One dental-related issue that can cause problems and give rise to chronic headaches and migraines is malocclusion, which is the misalignment of teeth. When the top and bottom teeth are misaligned, the pressure from chewing or biting can result in pain that radiates throughout the head. Your body misinterprets this head pain as a headache. For this reason, malocclusion is one of the leading causes of headaches. Fort Collins Headache Center can do extensive testing and take advanced diagnostic readings to find the precise cause of your headaches and migraines and successfully treat them, freeing you from the pain you’ve been living with.
Other problems that can result in migraines and headaches include disorders of the temporomandibular joint. This joint, commonly referred to as the TMJ, is responsible for more daily activity and capable of a greater range of motion than any other joint in the body. Because of these two facts, the temporomandibular joint has a higher risk factor for malfunctioning and creating associated problems. When this joint is problematic, through tightness, fatigue or by causing imbalances in the bite pattern, it can affect the ears, head, neck, and many other areas of the body. Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), as these conditions are collectively known, is another leading factor for headaches and migraines.
