If you are suffering from craniofacial pain, it is important to contact Mayoor Patel, DDS, for appropriate treatment options. With advanced treatment options available, Dr. Patel can help you find relief from your craniofacial pain. 

Here are some of the most common treatment options for combatting craniofacial pain. 

Prescription medication

With any disorder or pain, prescription medication can be a popular option. With craniofacial pain, taking the correct medicine is crucial. When prescribing a medication, all symptoms and pains are taken into account so you are given a drug that is right for your situation. It is important to understand the prescribed medicine so that it fits your lifestyle as well as treats your pain correctly. 

While taking medications, take note of any results you are noticing. It is also important to note if you are not feeling any relief. If you are having troubles, notify your doctor right away so he or she can prescribe a medication that suits your needs, or talk about a different plan of treatment. 

Physical therapy

Another option for treating craniofacial pain would be physical therapy. If you decide that physical therapy is the best option for you, you will be paired with a highly trained physical therapist who will help you reach your goal of no pain. 

During physical therapy, your therapist will coach you through exercises and massages that can alleviate your pain and train your muscles in order to prevent pain in the future. With ongoing communication between you and your physical therapist, you will be able to address any issues that may come up. 

Mindfulness and meditation

An alternate treatment plan is practicing mindfulness and meditation. Meditation is both soothing and calming, which can help to alleviate many stressors that could be contributing to your craniofacial pain. 

With mindfulness and meditation, you are calming your nerves beginning in the brain, and then flowing through the muscles. This in turn will provide you relief from any concentrated pain. 

The treatment options are out there, and it is up to you to decide which treatment plan works best for you and your lifestyle. If you have questions, Dr. Patel is available to help.
