The Problem With Contemporary Headache & Migraine Diagnosis
If you currently suffer with frequent or daily headaches and migraines and you’ve been diagnosed before, perhaps it’s time to change your way of thinking. The health care community, after decades of patient studies and failed headache and migraine treatment protocols, is finally beginning to change it’s thinking about headache and migraine diagnosis as well. Still, it’s not happening fast enough. Millions of individuals with previous migraine or headache diagnoses are still suffering.
In recent years it has become more clearly understood and accepted in the greater health care community that neuromuscular force imbalances of the head, neck, face, teeth, and jaw joints OFTEN play a major role — if not the starring role — in the manifestation of headache and migraine pain. Indeed, there may be multiple neuromuscular force issues at play which can work together to create complex headache and migraine conditions. Correct diagnosis of these forces is critical to getting relief.
Herein lies a major, MAJOR problem with contemporary headache and migraine diagnosis. The truth is, most healthcare providers are not properly trained to recognize neuromuscular force imbalances as contributing elements when they are present. Additionally, neuromuscular force problems are almost always present! If there are neuromuscular force issues within a patient, there is a strong likelihood that they could be entirely overlooked at the time of diagnosis. This problem underscores the need for patients to receive a more comprehensive headache and migraine diagnosis from individuals who have a deeper knowledge about neuromuscular force problems associated with headaches and migraines.
