Suffering from Facial Pain, Migraines, and Headaches?

Many people suffer from mild to moderate level of facial pain, whether its from headaches, migraines, stress, their bite or TMJ dysfunction.  Find out how Toxin Therapy can effectively relieve TMJ Syndrome, migraine headaches and a wide range of facial pain symptoms.

What Exactly is TMJ Syndrome?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, commonly referred to as TMJ or TMD occurs when there is a derangement in the normal function of the Temporomandibular Joint.  Repetitive behaviors such as teeth grinding or clenching, gum chewing, fingernail biting, or stress lead to enlargement of the head and neck muscles.

This disorder and dysfunction results in significant pain and impairment for many individuals.  Symptoms include, grinding, migraines, chronic headaches, earaches, facial pain, and damage to the teeth.  Traditional treatments for TMJ include the use of a bite guard, removal of wisdom teeth, and full mouth reconstructions.  These treatments usually result in limited success.  Toxin Therapy and trigger point injections in the head and neck muscles are very effective treatments for the muscular side effects of TMJ Syndrome, headaches and facial pain.

The Facts

  • Toxin Therapy treatment for TMJ typically takes just a few minutes depending on the number of injections needed.
  • Patients will begin to see results from their treatment with Botox within 3-5 days following the procedure.
  • The effects of treatment last for approximately 3 months.
  • After 2-3 treatments with Toxin Therapy, many patients lose the habit which accompanies the repetitive grinding or clenching.
  • The use of Toxin Therapy is very safe, however, as with any medical procedure there are possible risks and side effects to be aware of when using Toxin Therapy for TMJ treatment.

What’s Involved in Toxin TMJ Therapy and Treatments?

If you have TMJ Syndrome, headaches or migraine pain, and your healthcare professional determines you are a candidate for this treatment, your specific diagnosis and the severity of your condition will dictate how much Botox you will require.  Toxin is injected into the affected head and neck muscles.

Toxin Therapy injections take only a few minutes and will remain effective for up to three months.   Pain symptoms may return three months after your initial treatment.  With a series of treatments, Toxin Therapy can retrain your muscles to relax and you will notice your symptoms resolve for longer periods of time.
