Management of Headaches, Temporomandibular Disorders and Sleep Disorders
New York, NY
I have set up a full fledged practice in Fairfield, CT and New York City for treatment of patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMJ, TMD), headaches, chronic pain, and obstructive sleep disorders. Patients are referred by all medical specialists, as well as by general dentists. Careful patient diagnosis involves a comprehensive history and a detailed examination. When needed, MRI or CT scans are recommended. Non-surgical, conservative and goal setting treatment is the key to the patient management. Based on the patient's symptoms, treatments may involve oral appliance therapy, injection therapy (anesthetics, steroids or botulinum toxin), vapocoolant spray and stretch, medical acupuncture and pharmacotherapy. The key role of parafunction is emphasized. Supportive therapy, including physical therapy modalities are prescribed as necessary.

Thanks a lot. My headaches are probably due to a cervical reversal in my neck. I just wish I could do something for my pain. Nothing works.
Thank you, your answer was very helpful! My eye is better at the moment but I still have a headache. I really think tea will help.
