Morning Headaches? We Can Help!

Starting your day with a headache may affect your entire day.  Morning Headaches are usually easy to treat and address.  They are usually best treated without drugs.  The two most common causes of morning headaches are TMJ disorders and Sleep Apnea or Upper Airway resistance Syndrome.

Correction of the trigger that occurs in sleep can eliminate the morning headache or the one that occurs shortly after waking.  Frequently these same treatments can eliminate or minimize all headaches and migraines you experience.

This connection between sleep apnea, TMJ disorders and Headache has been examined by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute in their report "Cardiovascular and Sleep Consequences of Temporomandibular Disorders"

An oral appliance can help you mmaintain your ideal airway, eliminate snoring and sleep apnea and associated morning headaches.  Neuromuscular Dentistry is exceptional at eliminating headache and migraine problems for most patients who do not have sleep apnea.  Combination therapy can give miraculous results for many patients without the use of dangerous drugs.

Combination therapy with a night apnea appliance and a daytime Neuromuscular Orthotic may be the single best treatment for many patients who want to regain their quality of life.
