DISORDERS WE TREAT

Disorders we Treat at the MN Head and Neck Pain Clinic

Currently no widely accepted, one standard test can correctly diagnose pain disorders – because the exact causes and symptoms are not immediatelyclear.

Identifying an upper-body painful disorder may be complex. Currently, Minnesota health care providers listen carefull to the patient’s description of symptoms, assess the patient’s detailed medical and dental history, and examine the head, neck, face, and jaw for starters. Imaging studies may also be recommended.

We urge you to consult your doctor or pain specialist to rule out other known causes of pain. Facial pain is often a symptom of many possible conditions, such as a TMJ disorder, sinus or ear infections, various. various types of headaches (example: tension headaches), and facial neuralgias (nerve-related facial pain). Ruling out these problems first helps in identifying pain disorders.

The specialty of Orofacial Pain is concerned with the prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of orofacial pain disorders.
