Headache, Orofacial Pain and Bruxism: Diagnosis and multidisciplinary approaches to management has been written by clinicians for clinicians. It contains the collective knowledge of hundreds of years of clinical experience. The authors are drawn from a range of disciplines which regularly encounter patients with headache, orofacial pain or bruxism. They have described evidence-informed clinical practice derived from anatomical, physiological, and biomechanical concepts.

Patients who present with headache, orofacial pain or bruxism provide a clinical challenge to make sense of symptoms, sources, and contributing factors. There are many structures associated with problems in this region and patients may call on any of a number of health practitioners for diagnosis and treatment. It is often beyond the expertise of a single practitioner to address all facets of the problem without the assistance of colleagues.

  • This book provides clinicians with the theoretical and clinical information required to appreciate the role of each discipline involved in the management of patients with headache, orofacial pain and bruxism.
  • Clinicians are encouraged to use a multidisciplinary approach and to collaborate in the comprehensive management of these patients.

Key Features

  • The book contains a large section devoted to accurate evaluation and diagnosis.
  • The recognition of conditions that require immediate and urgent medical treatment is covered, while migraine is considered separately because it is such a debilitating and frequently misdiagnosed condition.
  • Headache in childhood and adolescence is considered separately because of the concern that is always associated with severe headache in the young.
  • The book presents a detailed discussion of measurement tools and methods.
  • Assessment and management approaches from disciplines including medicine, physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy, integrative medicine, dentistry, psychology, and psychiatry are put forward and discussed.
