    What types of symptoms are likely to respond to this therapy?

    The therapist is initially interested to detect dysfunctions of the head, neck and face regions and to evaluate their influence on your daily life activities. The cardinal symptoms are here more important than the diagnostic title. Many patients have been given various diagnostic titles for similar symptoms.
    Independent from the diagnosis we have attempted to provide you with a list of potential syndromes.

    This list is by no means complete!

The therapist may seek contact to your referring doctor about additional tests that may be required.
