BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL
Health should never to be taken as granted. Only when we suffer, do we miss it sorely. Therefore healthy, happy people are beautiful by definition. That is why we focus our treatments on health – beauty naturally follows.
The relation is not always visible to us: How stretching the lower jaw changes the way the tinnitus feels, how a back pain is mirrored by malpositioned jaws or teeth.
TREATING THE TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT
Depending on how severe the symptoms are, I might opt for a full time splint or night splint only in the treatment. These splints or orthotics are very effective and show no side-effects. In extreme cases – but these are very rare – an accompanying medication might be advisable. The typical active treatment period ranges from three to six months. Afterwards, the splint is usually only used for therapeutic prophylaxis.
The path of healing is often supported by accompanying treatments: from classic physiotherapy over osteopathy or chiropractice to autogenous training or yoga (self-help) or very rarely with psychotherapeutic support.
