Tweny patients (M: 4, F: 16, mean age 37 ± 11 years) with diagnosis of chronic daily headache (CDH), after drug withdrawal, were under electromyography, kinesiography and masticatory muscle deprogramming by TENS to identify the physiological rest position of the mandible. Our purpose was to clarify a possible role of the neuromuscular stomatognathic system.(More)
Since chronic migraine is difficult to treat and often associated with medication overuse, non-invasive neurostimulation approaches are worth investigating. Transcutaneous supraorbital neurostimulation using the Cefaly® device is promising as a non-invasive preventive treatment for episodic migraine, but no data are available for chronic migraine. Our aim(More)
Persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP) is a complex and uncertain nosographic entity, which has many aspects that need to be explored. The 21 patients selected (male 4 and female 17, mean age 40 years) were under electromyography (EMG) to determine the efficiency of the masseter muscles (MM) and the anterior temporalis muscles (TA), during activity and at(More)
Temporomandibular disorders are among the potential comorbidities of migraine, and recent reports showed that they may have a role in promoting its progression into chronic migraine (CM). In order to clarify the possible role of neuromuscular components of the stomatognathic system in patients with CM, we studied 18 patients admitted as inpatients at our(More)
The objective of this observational study is to report clinical and instrumental results obtained in 23 chronic migraine sufferers treated with transcutaneous neurostimulation with the Cefaly® device. The electrom yography (EMG) parameters of the patients monitored before and during neurostimulation with the Cefaly® device showed a significant increase in(More)
Considering the great chapter of migraines, it is important to note the signs and symptoms caused by an alteration of the relationship of the facial musculature and the occlusal freeway space (FWS) that is the distance from maximal intercuspation to the habitual rest position (measurable in 1.4–2.5 mm). To any mandible position changing (detected by(More)
The purpose of this paper is to present the results of a questionnaire investigating parafunctions (particularly clenching and grinding) in patients with chronic migraine presenting sign of temporomandibular disorder. The questionnaire was elaborated by the Dental Clinic of the University of Milano and completed by 125 patients experiencing chronic migraine(More)
There is a debate in literature about the therapeutic usefulness of oral devices in patients suffering from Medication Overuse Headache (MOH) or in patients suffering from Persistent Idiopathic Facial Pain (PIFP). From the case histories of 3356 patients, referred to us with a diagnosis of chronic craniofacial pain for assessment of the eventual application(More)
