There’s a new way to treat migraines—and it involves dentistry.
Research shows that about 75 percent of people who suffer from migraines see a decline in their symptoms after some of the stress in their face and neck is relieved.
That’s why a dentist, Dr. Biju Krishnan, and a psychotherapist, Kirsten Lord, say their solution will prevent migraines.
The goal of their clinic is to relieve the pressure of the migraine nerve. That’s what the package of their services is based on. The program includes physiotherapy to release the muscles that trap the nerve and then there’s a dental splint that is applied. The dental splint is used to cut down on the grinding of the teeth, which is a major factor in migraines.
