... Lizzie, Subie et al Good for you lizzie. Hearing about your "worst ever mri" does make me think a bit about the condition of your neck! As for all that heavy metal I can only think that would make things worse!! Anyway, approach your mri with a bit less anxiety. Subie. Like you I have days when the paranoia and doubts creep in to my thinking and I think "maybe I do... (24 replies)

... I am sorry you cannot find an osteopath. I would not advise AGAINST a chiropractor but I just personally prefer osteopaths and particulalry the specialism of Cranial osteopathy. Perhaps they are called something else in the US! ... (10 replies)
... Im 42 Misty. This has been going on now for a year and a half. I am struggling to cope. The osteopath does cranial work as well as general, so we'll see what he makes of it. This is indeed extreme. ... (5 replies)
... ng a cause and no one offering splint therapy as they said I didn't need it, even though I kept telling them I did, I went to an osteopath who advertised jaw and cranial work. ... (3 replies)
... Basically, I got a new bridge on the upper right that felt high but the dentist just blew me off like "it is ok; you will get used to it; and I can't drill anymore bacuse the metal is showing". So, in a week or 2 I got horrible pain in both jaws, middle ear symptoms, neck, shoulder, back pains etc. None of the doctors had an idea what was going on, they just gave me some... (11 replies)
... I can't say I am 100% confident he will be able to help me but my case may be a bit difficult - all my teeth were filed every which way by previous tmj dentists and I am missing my front teeth as well so I need a full mouth reconstruction - plus I developed cranial distortion or shifting and cervical misalignment (prior to seeing him) which has affected my nm and central...

... Do I have some freaky muscular disorder that is affecting my upper body, including my mouth? That's exactly what I thought when I first started having problems! I too was told by many drs including dentists it didn't seem indicative of tmj - and they may be right - it could be more along the lines of cranial mandibular cervical disorder - which is basically an imbalance...

... After you have exhausted exploring medical causes of the tinnitus - should medical drs not find anything or advise you to just live with it - search for a cranial chiro that uses applied kinesiology (try ICAK or Int'l Chiropractors of Applied Kinesiology) or search for a upper cervical chiropractor (try NUCCA - Nat's Upper Cervical Chiroprators Assoc) or orthogonist/orthogonal...

... For phase 2 he intends on giving me lower bracket braces on my back teeth to grow them up, then braces on all my lower teeth, then finish on my top teeth and that will end phase 2. He said some people get better in phase 2, and that since I have gotten better he thinks I will continue to do so, even though that sinus pain I have described has been with me for the whole ride,...

Is she having pain or... (5 replies)
... Hey guys - you were both busy today I see. Hmmm - muscles or bones - which comes first. Muscles probably pushed the bones as you both seemed to agree on but I doubt bones will move back on their own - even if the muscles are made to relax. And especially if your bones have been left out of alingment for any length of time. Although the muscles may have pushed the bones and... (82 replies)
... The best thing that helped with my chronic and frequent neck cracking was seeing a really good chiro trained in upper cervical or cranial disorders. ... (13 replies)
... Wow - what a difference 2 yrs can make - that post was written in 2006 - I never was able to figure out what actually moved although I suspect it was either my disc laterally displaced or the atlas (c1) - its the first vertebrae where you head sits on your neck. I have a lot less pain now - in 2007 I started seeing a cranial chiro - search under ICAK - and although it... (2 replies)
