Treatment of Chronic Facial & Jaw Pain in Raleigh, NC
Have a pain that just won’t go away? Many people with facial and jaw pain have spent countless hours visiting doctors and dentists but their pain seems resistant to every effort. For some, the pain is so severe that it keeps them out of work and interrupts important life events — ultimately gaining control of their life.
Chronic pain is a non-visual, multifaceted, episodic or an pain that lasts for 3 months or longer. The pain is found in a complex neurological area or in a deep structure, and it does not respond to single medical therapies.
When pain remains for longer periods of time, it gives the body time to adapt to the pain, which sets up a whole new problem of recruiting, perpetuating or adapting the pain system. As the pain system adapts, it becomes more resistant to pain reduction, more pain mechanisms get turned on, and other non-painful neurological systems change into pain systems.
Common chronic pains include frequent headaches, neck pain, jaw pain, jaw malfunction, fibromyalgia, frequent ear pains without infection, osteoarthritis, facial pain, peri-oral pain, migraines and chronic tension headaches.
