Going to your doctor or dentist to receive a TMJ diagnosis can be scary stuff. It’s virtually impossible to know if the advice given to you by a medical professional is accurate or not. It is not uncommon for a patient with TMJ disorder to receive conflicting advice based upon who they visit.
Today you’re going to learn the three reasons why a TMJ diagnosis is usually dead wrong.
It all starts with the unreliable “specialists” who see you; next comes the expensive pain medications forced upon you; lastly, when the diagnosis calls for an operation, you can easily find yourself in just as much pain – if not more – post-surgery than pre-surgery.
Once you realize that a TMJ diagnosis is totally bunk, you can start incorporating TMJ home remedies into your daily routine to start feeling pain relief immediately.
The “Specialist” Will See You Now
Pretty much any doctor or dentist can proclaim himself or herself to be an expert on TMJ disorder.
I’ve used the following quote before but I believe it bears repeating:
Neither the American Dental Association (ADA) nor the American Medical Association (AMA) recognizes the treatment of TMJ Disorders as a specialty.
If that doesn’t make you nervous then I don’t know what will.
I can tell you from personal experience that the only thing a “specialist” did for me a few years back was to make my suffering even worse, and cause me to go over $10,000 in debt.
So please, be careful when talking to someone who is claiming to be a specialist.
I Don’t Like The Drugs But The Drugs Like Me
Let me show you another important reason why a TMJ diagnosis is a waste of time. Many times the professional seeing you for the disorder will prescribe drugs to mask the pain. How is this going to help though – besides lining the pockets of doctors and drug manufacturers.
The only thing that pain medication will do is temporarily relieve the pain. It will, however, relieve your bank account quite efficiently of your hard-earned cash. You need to treat the disorder where it begins and drugs simply cannot do this.
Put Down That Knife And Slowly Walk Away
I feel awful for fellow sufferers who resort to surgery for TMJ disorder after receiving their diagnosis. Time and again I hear horror stories from folks who feel like they have no other choice but to go under the knife. The following snippet (written in the comments section on this website) captures the laments of thousands of TMJ victims:
The 11 years since the surgery have pretty much been a medical nightmare for me, with continued chronic pain and horrible muscle spasms in my jaw, neck, and shoulders that are pretty much constant.
It pains me to hear stories like this. That’s why home remedies for TMJ can help you today just as they’ve helped me.
Do It! Do It!
TMJ home remedies can help you instantly!
I can’t stress this enough. Through simple alterations to your diet, combined with breathing exercises and stretches, you WILL start to feel instant relief.
