“The pain had come out of nowhere for me some time ago. I was in a lot of pain and discomfort, and very anxious dealing with my TMJ issues. I have never really slept real well, even as a kid. Every day I had extremely bad jaw pain, neck/back/shoulder pain, a limited mouth opening, and headaches that never really went away. Frequently, I had to take Tylenol and Ibuprofen to help relieve the pain. I used to see a chiropractor and a physical therapist for dry needling. The chiropractor visits helped temporarily if at all, and the dry needling was a short term solution as well. Deciding to go through this process is the best decision I have ever made. I feel like this is the only thing that has helped me long term to get better.
My mouth opening went from 22 mm to 44 mm comfortably. The only issues I may have now are occasional headaches and neck pain that don’t last very long. I no longer need to take any pain medication. The biggest improvement I would say is my jaw pain no longer bothers me. I feel like I am less anxious, have more energy, and sleep better at night. Overall, I feel like I have a better quality of life. I would encourage others to consider going through this process.”
