About Orofacial Pain
Orofacial Pain (OFP) includes problems with chewing muscles, the temporomandibular joint, and the associated nervous system that can lead to pain in the head, neck, shoulders, and back. For more detailed information, visit the American Academy of Orofacial Pain.
OFP is frequently misdiagnosed because it shares symptoms with many other conditions. If you’re experiencing head, neck, or back pain, schedule a consultation today.
Our office believes in evidence-based treatment for orofacial pain.
Like fibromyalgia, OFP disorders are often misdiagnosed or just plain missed by doctors because the symptoms can mirror those of other conditions.
Our office uses practices backed by research, evidence, and academia. The cause of these pains is poorly understood and new treatment modalities are currently being researched.
What does that mean for you?
Understanding the treatment options available for orofacial pain can be overwhelming. Dr. Dornan has dedicated her career to this research and would be happy to review your options with you. Your symptoms are unique, so your treatment should be too.
