Doctor, Why Does My Face Still Ache? with Dr Tanenbaum

Getting Relief from Persistent Jaw, Ear, Tooth, and Headache Pain

Donald R. Tanenbaum, DDS, MPH and S. L. Roistacher, DDS, FACD, FICD

This groundbreaking book explains why millions of Americans with persistent headaches, toothaches, jaw pain, and other debilitating facial pain can't find relief – even after seeing many doctors in search of a solution. The problem is that most physicians and dentists look for injury or disease to explain the pain but ignore the relationship between emotions and muscles, which compose most of the face. While the mind-body connection has been applied to treat back, heart, and skin ailments and gastrointestinal disorders, this is the first book to clearly explain how the brain initiates bodily changes that result in persistent facial pain. This book will not only benefit people with chronic facial pain but also physicians and dentists less familiar with these problems.

Donald R. Tanenbaum maintains a private practice in New York City and on Long Island, and has both university and hospital-based academic appointments. A Past President of the American Academy of Orofacial Pain, he received a DDS and MPH degree from Columbia University in 1982. S. L. Roistacher, a founding member of the International Association for the Study of Pain and the American Pain Society, was the Chairman of the Department of Dental Medicine, Queens Hospital Center, for over 30 years. His involvement in the field of pain led to the formation of the Head and Neck Pain Center at Queens Hospital Center. He received a DDS degree from New York University.
