The goals of our consultations are to rule out and to make a diagnosis of certain head and neck pain conditions. We can provide diagnostic and therapeutic injections for numbing muscles or blocking nerve pain. We also offer dry needling of trigger points located within the muscles of the head and neck. If needed, oral stabilization appliances (splints) and intra-oral sleep apnea appliances can be made. If medications are involved in the treatment plan, the amount and types of medications used will be monitored and finely adjusted. We also recommend specific exercises for certain conditions. Working with other health care providers and arranging phone meetings between providers are also part of what we do to ensure that we all work together on your behalf.
The following links give an overview of each of the common orofacial pain conditions.
