Every ten seconds, someone in America goes into an emergency room because of a migraine.
A migraine is a common type of headache that may have a variety of symptoms including nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound. In many people, a throbbing pain is isolated to one side of the head. Some patients suffering from migraines have warning symptoms, known as auras, before the actual headache begins.
The diagnosis for a Migraine usually includes the following criteria:
5 or more headaches within a 3 month span – each lasting between 4 and 72 hours
At least two of the following:
- Pulsating sensations
- Unilateral pain
- Moderate to severe discomfort
- Pain aggravated with exertion
And one of the following symptoms:
- Light and sound sensitivity
- Nausea and/or vomiting
Types of Migraines include:
- Episodic – defined as less than 15 migraine headaches per month
- Chronic – defined as 15 or more migraine headaches per month
- Episodic migraine with aura
- Chronic migraine with aura
- Chronic migraine without an aura

Trigger points are defined as hyper-irritable points in the skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fiber. Trigger Points can be easily identified by holding palpation for 6-10 seconds at 4-8 pounds of pressure. Myalgia will have no referral of pain, meaning the site and the source are the same as opposed to Myofascial pain which has pain referral to another location.
TMJ Facial Pain
The TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) connects the jawbone to the skull. Located at the sides of the head near each ear, these joints play an essential role in eating, speaking, and making facial expressions. In fact, the TMJ is one of the most frequently used and complex joints in the entire body.
TMJ symptoms can happen when the temporomandibular joints stop working properly. This can happen for many reasons and result in chronic ear pain, jaw stiffness and soreness, difficulty opening the mouth, jaw popping or jaw clicking, and neck pain migraine headaches. Sufferers of TMJ pain may experience either sharp pain or a dull, constant ache.
These symptoms can help your Anew MedSpa medical professional effectively give TMJ treatment options for sufferers of TMJ pain, based on each patient’s unique needs. General dentists, are typically sought for TMJ diagnosis and care. These health care professionals can provide more information on what causes the condition, how it is treated, and other TMJ topics.
Treatment options for facial pain and headaches vary based on the type and cause of pain. At Anew MedSpa we believe It’s beneficial to utilize conservative options when treating facial pain. After receiving a proper diagnosis the treating clinician will determine what treatment plan is best.
Treatments options include transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), ultrasound, trigger-point injections, therapeutic Botox injections, ethyl chloride, low level laser therapy. TENS and laser light wave therapy send low levels of electrical or radio waves of energy to the affected area to stimulate blood flow to the joint and surrounding area.
Botox injections are being used more frequently in medical offices as "off label" treatments for more troublesome maladies such as TMD. Studies have shown patients who received these injections experienced significant improvement in pain, function, ability to open their mouth and levels of tenderness to palpation. The medical professionals at Anew MedSpa can determine if you are a candidate for this treatment. The frequency of Botox injections needed will depend on the severity of your condition.
To achieve a successful outcome, it is important for your medical professional to use the correct injection technique, as well as follow the appropriate dosage guidelines. The Anew MedSpa medical professionals treat facial pain cases like yours every day, helping thousands of people get "Anew" lease on life!
