Dental Whole Body Connections

The song, "The head bone is connected to the neck bone; the neck bone is connected the shoulder bone" and so on reveals functional anatomic relationships that led researcher Dr. James Carlson, of Seattle Washington, to invent an instrument that literally helps realign the body and reduce or eliminate chronic head, neck, facial and low back pain of structural origin.

Researcher, author, and clinical practitioner, Dr. Gerald H. Smith, has collaborated with Dr. Carlson to refine the clinical techniques. Doctor Smith is a recognized authority in the field of head, neck and facial pain. Here we present a wide variety of sometimes not-so-obvious connections that can result in resolution of problems many health-care professionals would have given-up on. Indeed, for some of these patients, many physicians had given up on them.
