Clara Found Relief from Facial Pain – You Can Too with TMJ Treatments
Do you suffer from facial pain caused by TMJ disorder, or TMD?
If so, you’ve probably spent a lot of time trying to find relief from the burning pain in your face, jaw, and neck. And if you’re like many people, you’ve come up short-handed.
Thankfully, there is a solution that can not only help with your pain but can also reduce stress and anxiety – two things that cause muscle tension and can lead to even more pain.
Dr. Shapira’s patient, Clara, has tried more than one TMJ treatment that has helped ease her pain, stress, and anxiety. Check out what she has to say about her treatment plan.
What Clara Has to Say About the Level of Success with Dr. Shapira
Facial pain can be debilitating. It can make it difficult to function and accomplish everyday activities. Such pain can lead to stress and anxiety, which is especially frustrating if you already have high levels of each.
Clara from Mississippi was in a similar boat. Over six months of treatment with Dr. Shapira, though, Clara achieved incredible results.
Most of her TMD pain had disappeared and she noticed lowered stress and anxiety responses in her daily life. At her most recent appointment, Clara presented with burning pain on the right side of her face. Dr. Shapira administered Trigger Point injections and put Clara through a dry needling session, specifically focusing on her sternocleidomastoid muscle.
Instantly, the burning pain she was feeling completely disappeared.
The last step in Clara’s treatment plan is to build the biting surfaces of her teeth up with composite filling material. Doing so will help control her bite long-term. The great thing about this treatment is that it doesn’t require any anesthesia or reduction of the teeth.
