Successful Resolution of TMJ Disorder
A female patient in her mid 50ís came for treatment in 2011. She complained about severe symptoms related to TMJ. More specifically, she reported clicking and snapping in her jaws as well as popping in the ears and headaches. The patient suffered from severe pain (8-9 out of 10) as well as irritability and insomnia (lack of sleep) due to the pain.

A combined treatment program composed of massage (e.g. contraction technique to relax jaw muscles) as well as homeopathic and herbal remedies was applied for a total of one week (three sessions every other day). In addition, a night guard was prescribed. At this point, preventative maintenance is implemented.
The results of the treatment have been very promising. The patient experienced complete pain relief. She continues to wear her splint to maintain the good health condition. The results have been sustained ever since. She is very happy.
