The Key to MHRPA Migraine and Headache Treatments is Restoring Bite Force Harmony
We must first understand that the head is a dynamic structure that requires a complete harmony of function between the teeth, muscles, nerves and joints in order to function without symptomatic pain. Here at The Migraine Headache Relief Center of Pennsylvania we know that the most successful long term results to becoming pain free happen when the teeth, muscles, nerves and joints all work together in perfect harmony. We are here to help you regain harmony to the head and neck, and to get you free from headache and migraine pain.
MHRPA Migraine and Headache Treatment Process
Our breakthrough migraine and headache treatments focus on restoring bite force balance and harmonizing the interactions between head and neck muscles, joints, nerves and teeth — NOT drugging the patient to mask symptoms. Therefore you can expect a painless, drug-free, needle-free treatment experience.
Manual massage techniques are used in our headache and migraine treatments at MHRPA. Manipulating the trigger points — sub-dermal pockets of painful tension — helps to decrease pain and intensity. Blood flow is increased, inflammation decreased, and it promotes accelerated healing.
Cranial Electrical Stimulation
Cranial Electrical Stimulation (CES) is where we introduce a low-level electrical signal into the musculature. The microcurrent interacts with the bioelectricity in the body of the headache and migraine sufferer and can result in a reduction to pain frequency and intensity. Muscle spasms and the potential for referral pain into other areas are also reduced while healthy nerve stimulation is encouraged.
Ultrasound of the Muscles
Using an ultrasound device offers several key benefits to patients with chronic pain conditions like headaches and migraines. It actually feels quite good! Patients describe it as a warming sensation and similar to getting a massage. Ultrasound aids in returning circulation to sore and strained muscles by increasing blood flow with heat.
Cold Laser Treatment
Cold laser technology is a headache and migraine treatment modality used by MHRPA to rehabilitate sore trigger points. Red red light photons, or infrared, work on both the hard and soft tissues to promote rapid healing. Low-level cold laser can reduce pain and inflammation while helping to reconnect the neurological pathways within the headache and migraine sufferer.
Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Orthotic Devices
Neuromuscular rehabilitation orthotics are critical to the long-term success of our headache and migraine treatment plans at MHRPA. A rehabilitation orthotic is a device placed in the mouth to retrain the bite and allow the muscles of the mouth and jaws to return to their appropriate resting positions. The muscles in the head, neck, teeth, mouth, jaws, etc., are all related. When any of these muscles become overworked, harmony must be restored to return pain-free functionality.
Isn't it time to eliminate your headache and migraine suffering?
The root causes behind headache and migraine suffering are different from person to person. Each patient is given a custom-tailored course of treatment specific to their unique diagnosis. The full course of treatment for headache and migraine is usually about 12 weeks in length. Treatment sessions occur once a week and last about 50 minutes.
Again, MHRPA’s headache and migraine treatments target the root causes for your headache or migraine pain — not just the symptoms. You could even be PAIN-FREE in under 3 months.
