THE MISTERY OF MIGRAINE PAIN
Migraine pain may be caused or intensified by the muscles under your scalp.
Place your finger on the side of your head (as pointed on the illustration ) and firmly clench your jaws. Can your feel the huge temporal jaw muscle bulging under your fingertips? Itís those muscle that are used when you chew or close your mouth. The same muscles can trigger most migraine pain.
It starts as a sleep disorder of intense jaw clenching (TMG). Itís a very common and painful jaw disorder caused by clenching tightly in- and off- centered, lopsided way while asleep and occasionally throughout the day.
This causes extremely intense muscular contraction, but little strain on the jaw.
Nighttime jaw clenching usually goes unnoticed, but it sets the stage for migraine, chronic headache pain, and even damage to surrounding joints, teeth, and neck muscles.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
The intensity of jaw clenching can be effectively reduced or minimized by using Anti Migraine Device (AMD).
AMD is a small, nearly invisible, removable device that comfortably fits over your top front teeth. It makes clenching virtually impossible.
You only wear it when youíre asleep. Itís a custom-fitted device that prevents the posterior teeth surfaces from ever coming into intense contact. By preventing high intensity contact, you also eliminate high intensity clenching and the muscular irritation.
You involuntary clenching reflex is suppressed. In time, morning headache pain, neck pain, sore jaw, and other related pain associated with intense clenching usually begins to resolve and disappear.
Subsiding symptoms are directly related to the degree of each individual condition. Many patients report significant relief overnight, other usually within two to four weeks.
The time to break the habit of clenching you jaw muscles varies from patient to patient.
The AMD may maximize your comfort and wellóbeing and eliminate the need for prescription and over-the-counter-pain medication.
