A Phoenix area pain management center, we focus on treatment of headaches as well as the hard to detect conditions. We are a leading provider of headache diagnosis and treatment and are led by Dr. Stan Farrell, a highly distinguished doctor at treating a wide variety of causes of head pain.
Identification of the type of headache is crucial to treatment; many headaches are triggered and maintained by muscle, nerve, or joint problems. Decreasing and controlling these triggers can decrease the frequency and/or intensity of the headaches. The psychological component to headache and pain may necessitate the recommendation for biofeedback and or positive changes.
The Trigeminal Nucleus Caudalis (TNC) is the brain’s pain relay system. Most of all pain signals from the head and neck pass through it. Pain signals can get crossed, as well as, and create pain referral patterns. This is how patients suffer from TMJ problems that may contribute to tooth pain, headache or other facial pains.
Migraines and headaches are more commonly triggered by head and neck pains such as those associated with TMD. If a trigger is un-treated, the pain may become chronic, and centralized within the nervous system and thus more difficult to treat.
Many medications and endorphins help to control the activity in this area. Therefore, many patients with TMJ problems, migraine or tension type headaches have significant relief from their headaches when jaw pain or other head or neck pain is reduced. It is our philosophy to limit the amount of input in this area to ultimately help patients with their pain management.
Our headache and pain management doctor, Dr. Stan Farrell, is one of the best-qualified doctors in the country for treating head pain. His state-of-the-art treatments are proven to alleviate pain over the long term without the dangers of addiction to prescribed medications.
