Treatment Options for Chronic Headaches
- Posted on: Jun 10 2015
Do you suffer from migraine headaches? Have you been unsuccessful in finding a treatment that relieves the pain? In recognition of National Headache Awareness Week, June 6-12, we would like to bring attention to a possible migraine cause, TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder.
TMJ is a disorder affecting the jaw joint. If your jaw is misaligned or not working properly, the surrounding nerves, musculature and blood vessels are distressed which can lead to pain that migraine sufferers experience. Untreated symptoms of TMJ may eventually lead to additional problems in your head, neck, back and shoulders.
Dr. Heather F. Fleschler uses a neuromuscular treatment protocol to determine if TMJ is causing you migraine headaches. If the diagnosis determines TMJ is indeed the cause, the treatment includes restoring your jaw to an ideal bite. Such treatment may include:
- Dental restorations
- Orthotic Treatment
- Basic lifestyle changes
Whether you have suffered from migraine headaches for a short period of time or if the painful symptoms have spanned several years, there is still hope for finding a solution. Dr. Fleschler will work with you to determine the precise cause of your headaches so that you can experience the relief you desire.
Please contact Dr. Heather Fleschler using the form at the right side of the page or call (713) 660-6500today to schedule a headache consultation. Dr. Fleschler serves patients in the West University, River Oaks, Bellaire, and Meyerland areas of Houston, Texas.
