What is a Migraine?
Do you Experience the Following?

What is a Migraine?

Section 1:

  • Single sided pain?
  • Pulsating quality?
  • Moderate/severe pain?
  • Aggravation with or causing avoidance of physical activity?

Section 2:

During your Headache/Migraine have you experienced one of the following?

  • Nausea / Vomiting?
  • Sensitivity to light / sounds / strong smells?

If you answered yes to two answers from section 1, and one answer from section 2 then you suffer from migraines (as long as there is no other cause which can be found by your doctor or specialist). So if you suffer with a throbbing headache which is moderate to severe and you just want to ‘sleep it off’ then it’s probably a migraine

Lyndsey Had a Migraine Everyday

Lyndsey Had a Migraine EverydayThe flashing lights and other auras actually only happen in around 25% of migraines. It’s also very common to see numerous professionals and get no resolution of pain. Unfortunately, there is no magic cure and many people feel like they have to put up with the pain.

One such person was Lyndsey, who had a migraine everyday and rated it a 9/10 pain as a minimum.

She had seen numerous doctors and neurologists and had no relief.

Her medications made her feel even more tired, she was at risk of losing her job and she couldn’t make any plans with friends or family in case she developed a migraine. She had to fit what was left of her life around her pain.

Lyndsey was very skeptical about whether he could get any kind of pain relief for her. Lyndsey was so keen to get rid of her pain that she decided to undertake treatment. Lyndsey’s path to recover was not an easy one, however she is now completely pain free. She is performing much better at work and has even gotten married. Migraines are no longer a problem for her.

Treatment for Migraines, Headaches and Jaw Joint Problems

treatmentWe offer a range of treatments which have been shown to be incredibly effective at managing migraine symptoms. In fact, one of the techniques used has FDA approval in the US at being the most effective treatment at managing medically diagnosed migraines.

The cornerstone of our treatment is a very specific type of bite guard for you to wear whilst you alseep. This bite guard does two things, firstly is dramatically reduces the intensity with which you can clench and grind your jaw. This RELAXES your muscles and dramatically reduces the amount of sensory overload going to your brain. This in return reduces the muscular fatigue and the pain associated with it and also dramatically improves your brain’s ability to cope. No matter whether you wake up with a migraine or it progresses during the day, this will still work with the same success rate.

 

It is important to understand that there are many different kinds of appliances but very few of them work, in addition the level of expertise required to refine them so that they work is very high. We have spent a lot of time learning this process and has even refined it further to gain better results.

We also use medical grade lasers to help promote healing from worn muscles and ligaments which can give migraine like symptoms. By combining these numerous therapies, we are in an excellent position to help you get in control of your pain.

FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions)

What types of problems do patients have?

We generally find that sufferers have the same types of problems which include any mix of throbbing pain, pain behind your eye, neurological problems associated with migraines, neck and shoulder pain, chronic fatigue and dental problems such as teeth continually breaking or generalised sensitivity.

I tried medication and did not work. Why has my medication not worked?

Quite simply because medication can mask the symptoms rather than address the main causes. Medications for migraines and headaches are not particularly effective. It’s important that you understand that we approach this from a completely different angle than doctors and neurologists. It just happens to be that he gets incredible success rates

We see so many patients who have already been on numerous medications for years if not decades, you may have already had bite guards, acupuncture, physiotherapy, treatments with osteopaths and chiropractors all with limited effect. Please don’t be disheartened, we still get the same results for all of our patients.

What about other treatments like massage, acupuncture, and other treatments?

Some treatments can help, but often only for a limited time. Again this is often because it’s not dealing with the main cause which is clenching and grinding of your teeth at night time. This process, known as parafunction or bruxism, causes muscular fatigue and overloads your brain with too much sensory information, wanting it to ‘shut down’ whilst it tries to catch up with this sensory overload.

What are Headaches due to bruxism (teeth grinding at night)?

The pain over the side of your face, over your temple and side of your skull, the pain around and behind your eye, neck and shoulder pain are ALL a DIRECT result of muscular fatigue caused by clenching and grinding. Now, a LOT of people just clench their jaws together so don’t actually grind, so there is often no noise and your partner will not hear you doing it. You have no control over this, and the treatments are based upon managing the intensity of this clenching and grinding habit

Your Bite & The Nervous System – What’s the connection?

Many dentists believe your bite needs to be ‘perfect’ in order to resolve these issues. In fact, most of our patients have had bite guards or bite adjustments in the past with little success. Up to date science shows your bite has nothing to do with these problems, rather it’s your neurology (i.e. your nervous system) which is the driving factor. The teeth merely get in the way. Therefore by allowing your nervous system to do whatever it’s programmed to do with minimal resistance that has a colossal impact on the pain symptoms

Why Don’t All Bite Guards Don’t work

There are literally hundreds of different types of bite guards, and the vast majority of them do not work or can make the problem worse. In fact, the right type of bite guard adjusted properly won’t work either! The right bite guard, adjusted correctly and worn whilst you sleep can turn your life around.
