IS A MUSCLE?
A muscle is a living tissue
with a specific job to do.
IS A CITY LIKE A MUSCLE?
A city is like a muscle
because it needs the following:
A city needs workers to take food
into it and to distribute that food throughout its
boundaries. As long as the air does not become polluted, the
city is healthy. As long as the garbage is collected and
taken away, the city is a welcoming place. If there is a
blockage or barrier to the flow of food, clean air or garbage
transportation systems into or out of the city, then problems
begin to arise.
DOES A MUSCLE NEED?
muscle has to be fed, rested and have its waste products removed.
DO MUSCLES DO?
muscle is designed for a specific purpose and has its own special
requirements. A muscle always pulls or contracts to move
something, such as a bone.
MIGHT CAUSE SOME MUSCLES TO HAVE TO WORK HARDER THAN WHAT THEY
WERE DESIGNED TO DO?
Muscles must work harder if they have to overcome some Interference.
This means that they will eventually become unable to work
properly and can even go into spasm. This happens with our
jaw muscles and causes Migraine
Interference is caused by a
tooth or teeth acting as a blockage preventing the proper chewing
of your food. Just like an accident on a highway blocks the
transportation of food into the city and the garbage out of the
city, so a tooth or teeth can act as a form of Interference
to block the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the various muscles
of the jaw, as well as preventing removal of the waste
products such as carbon dioxide
IS INTERFERENCE BAD FOR THE MUSCLES?
Interference is bad for jaw
muscles because it means that if your jaw cannot move sideways to
get the shearing force that you need to chew your food properly,
then more pressure must be applied in the area that your jaw can
actually move in.
DOES THIS PROCESS BECOME A VICIOUS CYCLE?
This process of your jaw muscles working harder to enable your
teeth to prepare your food for swallowing becomes a vicious cycle
when the demands made on the muscles are more than the blood
vessels can handle to supply those muscles with their own food and
waste removal to continue working.
IS THE RESULT?
The result is Migraine pain. In
other words, the assembly line has too many demands made upon it,
and breaks down.
Migraine pain is your body's
way of telling you that your jaw muscles are being asked to do
more work than they can handle at that time. They need rest
and so they call a "strike" in the form of Migraine
pain to get your attention.
the muscles have had a chance to stop working, they begin to
unwind and relax or "recharge" themselves. Your
Migraine pain goes away. But the reason for your pain
(the Interference) remains.
Just like the city workers clear away the
food, air and waste removal blockage so that the city can function
once more, the Dentist must eliminate the Dental Blockage, that
is, the Interference, so
that any one or combination of the 16 Migraine
Triggers found in your mouth can be removed.
