If you have persistent headaches or migraines, the source of your problems may actually be dental in nature. At BC Head Pain Institute, we assess the balance of dental forces to provide lasting headache relief.
Our treatment involves no drugs or injections, and it has provided relief to many of our patients. They are amazed about how well it works, and we love it when thank us for finally bringing them relief from the severe headaches that have hampered their lives.
One problematic thing about persistent headaches is that they can have various causes. As a result, people seeking relief from debilitating pain will search high and low for a treatment that works. We’ve known patients who’ve had CAT scans and MRIs to try to figure out the source of the problem. They’ve tried various over-the-counter and prescription drugs, chiropractors and massage therapists. But if the source of the problem is an imbalance of forces in the teeth and jaw, our treatment can be the answer.
BC Head Pain Institute’s treatment starts with a diagnosis. We will measure the opening and closing of your mouth and quantify the bite forces in your individual teeth. Diagnosis also involves a questionnaire that looks into the details of your symptoms, their history, and medical events of your past.
For treatment, we use a combination of various therapies, including cold laser, microcurrent, massage, and ultrasonic therapy. None these are painful, require injections, or pharmaceuticals. Treatment might last a single session or as many as twelve sessions.
Many patients have told us that their headaches prevented them from functioning normally in the world. They couldn’t go to work, school place, or parties. They couldn’t eat the food they wanted or enjoy a glass of wine. BC Head Pain Institute has made their persistent headaches go away and changed their lives!
