TMJ Disorder Treatment – a Unique Combo Approach from JWP & EA
By Enliven Aesthetics. Posted February 11, 2022
Shockwave for TMJ
Shockwave is a non-invasive, non-surgical approach for treating TMJ (Temporo-mandibular joint) disorder with some of the highest success rates. Shockwave for TMJ and jaw pain is becoming the new gold standard for treatment! Originally used to break up kidney stones and other calcium deposits in the body, researchers discovered that it also had the ability to treat painful soft tissue injuries. One study of the treatment compared shockwave therapy versus placebo and found that 64% of patients saw improvement with the shockwave therapy.
Botox or Dysport for TMJ:
Dysport and Botox are both used to treat TMJ disorder and associated jaw tension and pain. When Dysport or Botox is injected into the tensed facial jaw muscles causing the pain, it relieves the symptoms – such as jaw clicking, teeth grinding and headaches – of TMJ for many patients.
Our Unique Combo Approach:
Treating TMJ and jaw pain with our unique combo approach includes a session of shockwave followed by injections of Dysport or Botox. Shockwave stimulates the body to send signals to the jaw muscles to relax. Dysport or Botox reduces tension and spasms. Not only does the clicking, grinding and pain diminish, but patients have observed that their faces also appear slimmer.
While 2-4 shockwave treatments over two weeks can provide lasting relief, we have found that patients notice an improvement after just one session. For patients on a tight schedule, we have customized an effective solution into a one-time visit.
Our special package pricing – $275 for 1 round of Shockwave and 1 round of Dysport/Botox – only lasts until the end of February. Call us to inquire about this treatment package for you or your Valentine today!
