The major missing link in Adam’s pain puzzle was the fact that the extraction of his wisdom teeth caused a direct distortion of his cranial motion. This iatrogenically caused distortion placed a pull in his dural membrane system that extended down to his sacrum.

Eight years of chronic pain due to third molar extractions

Most people are walking time bombs and don’t even know it. Adam was a perfect example. He followed the advice of his dentist and had his wisdom teeth removed. After several months his pain symptoms started appearing. He even developed a sever clenching habit. His journey took him to Harvard school of dentistry, numerous oral surgeons, dentists, chiropractors, neurologists and other health care practitioners in hopes of resolving his chronic neck, mid and low back pain. Unfortunately none of the therapies worked.

The major missing link in Adam’s pain puzzle was the fact that the extraction of his wisdom teeth caused a direct distortion of his cranial motion. This iatrogenically caused distortion placed a pull in his dural membrane system that extended down to his sacrum. Adam also had a complicating factor which helped to perpetuate his pain pattern. He had a slight malocclusion which caused an abnormal contact on his lower left second molar tooth. The excess force on an incline of his second molar was causing his temporal bones to rotate out of alignment. This distortion caused a twisting of his body with resultant muscle pain. Since functional anatomy is not part of the routine curriculum in dental or medical schools this information is unknown to most conventional dentists and medical doctors. Because of their ignorance, Adam experienced varying degrees of ridicule from the uninformed doctors of higher learning.

After evaluating Adam’s skull for specific cranial distortions, it was evident to me that the removal of his wisdom teeth was the basis for his problem. A comprehensive cranial adjustment was done to correct the misalignment. Following the adjustment, the offending occlusal or tooth interference was removed. Adam immediately experienced a reduction of 99% of his pain.

The bite correction will help stabilize his cranium and allow his muscles to realign and remain pain free.
