What procedures are included in Austin/Central Texas Migraine Relief exam?

Austin/Central Texas Migraine Relief exam includes a number of tests and measurements of the head, neck, mouth and TMJ. In addition to recording several key diagnostic measurements and a muscle palpation exam of the key muscles of mastication, Dr. Jaeckle will use two unique, patented technologies which in about five minutes can provide objective, diagnostic information which may help identify the causes of your symptoms. These technologies enable Dr. Jaeckle to determine whether your symptoms may be the result of forces from the nerves, muscles and ligaments.

The first device is a painless, computer guided analysis that measures bite force and jaw action while in motion. It is a true and telling movie of your bite in process! The resulting digital, graphic report literally shows you where you may have abnormal forces or imbalances that could be the cause of certain symptoms. The technology is so advanced that it actually determines and calculates the bite force and motion on an individual, tooth by tooth basis along with the timing of those forces!

The second device measures the range of motion of the head and neck and instantly mathematically calculates a patient’s deviance from normal motion which can be signs of various conditions.

Dr. Jaeckle will also perform a detailed head, neck, mouth, jaw and tooth examination to further identify any potential problems. When combined, these proprietary and comprehensive exam methods can enable Dr. Jaeckle to show you the potential problem areas that may be leading to your unique symptoms.
