Craniofacial Pain Treatment

Oromyofacial Issues and Craniofacial Pain Treatment

Unexplained pain in the head, face, and neck frequently have their origin in oromyofacial disorders. There can be temporomandibular dysfunction, for example. People may grind or clench their teeth frequently, typical during sleep. There can be high levels of anxiety, that express as persistent tension headaches. In the young, problems frequently arise from an inappropriately head-forward posture, exacerbated by phone and device use.

How We Can Help

Intervention is as varied as the root cause. Broadly, it involves re-education of your core body support, posture, respiration, and orofacial musculature. This can mean involving your tongue, lips, jaw, pharynx, or head and neck muscles – all in light of your general posture. The aim always is optimal mobility, range of motion, symmetry, strength, and coordination. For most syndromes we can treat and discharge in 3 or 4 months. 

For complex pain cases, we hold an interdisciplinary clinic on Fridays, with Dr. Suzie Bergman, DDS, Orofacial Pain Dentist, Corinne Jarvis, SLP, and Sasha Vidalon, SLP, Oromyofuncation Disorder Specialists, and Aimee Jackson, PT, and Kelly Reed, PT, TMD Physical Therapists, Licensed Behavioral Health Support specialists and Registered Nurse Practitioners.
