Suffering from headaches or neck pain? We can help.

If you are suffering from head, neck, TMJ and/or facial pain problems, your pain may be directly related to bite changes (occlusion) and orthopedic jaw joint changes. Dr. Jeffrey M. Rayl has over 30 years of experience in headache, neck and facial pain problems and can accurately diagnose to determine if your pain problems are related to a tooth position/jaw joint position discrepancy.

Through a thorough diagnostic process it will be determined whether or not treatment is necessary. If treatment is necessary, it’s also possible to determine in advance whether it will be successful.

Our patients frequently suffer from the following symptoms:

  • Neck-aches, shoulder and/or upper back pain
  • Headache upon awakening from sleep
