According to the National Headache Foundation, more than 45 million Americans suffer from frequent or recurrent headaches. Those suffering from more than four headaches per month should seek the advice of a healthcare professional.
One of the most common symptoms that patients present with at the Vita Head, Neck & Facial Pain Relief Center, is a HEADACHE. Location is the key when it comes to headaches. Once the patient can identify the location of the pain, it directly leads to the source of the pain.
Patients with headaches associated with a TMJ/TMD source usually present with pain in the temples, in front of the ears and across the forehead and are often considered tension type or muscular associated headaches.
Head pain located on the top and/or back region of the head and sometimes into the temples, are almost always associated with neck problems. Dr. Vita has found that in many patients, the TMJ and Neck dysfunctions are related. When treated simultaneously, the patient achieves extraordinary results.
Dr. Vita is a general dentist who has founded the Vita Head Neck & Facial Pain Relief Center to focus on safe, effective ways to end or substantially reduce pain among his patients. All of Dr. Vita's patients benefit from his extensive research, individualized treatment and true commitment to helping people get out of pain and have a better quality of life.
