Chronic Facial Pain and Trigeminal Neuralgia are serious problems that rarely respond well to medication. Facial Pain and Trigeminal Neuralgia respond especially well to Neuromuscular Dentistry because the Myomonitor, the ULF-TENS invented by Dr Barney Jankelson not only treats the Trigeminal and Facial Nerves but also acts as a stimulator to the sphenopalatine ganlion.
The Sphenopalatine Ganglion is the largest Parasympasthetic Ganglion of the head that also has sympathetic fibers running thru it. The sympathetic nervous system is usually responsible for acute pain becoming chronic and the serendipitous positioning of the SPG on the maxillary branch of the Trigeminal nerve is probably a main reason for the enormous success with neuromuscular dentistry in treating chronic facial pain andf trigeminal neuralgia.
The use of SPG Blocks in conjunction with neuromuscular dentistry often makes treatment progress much faster with far better pain relief early on.
Patients who are taught self administration of SPG Blocks often do exceedingly well.
There are over 100 patient testimonial videos describing how treatment has helped them. This includes help with facial pain and trigeminal neuralgia.
