Our orofacial pain therapy service involves a range oftechniques and equipment aimed at addressing a wide range of conditions andinjuries. Here are some of the techniques and equipment we use:
Myotherapy is a specialized form of massage therapy that targets the muscles and soft tissues of the face, jaw, and neck. By applying targeted pressure and stretching techniques, myotherapy can help alleviate pain, release muscle tension, and improve range of motion in these areas.
Our orofacial pain therapists may recommend supplements to support the body's natural healing processes, reduce inflammation, and promote overall health. These recommendations are based on your specific needs.
Dry needling involves the insertion of thin needles into trigger points in the muscles to alleviate pain, reduce muscle tension, and improve function. This technique can provide immediate relief for many patients and may be particularly beneficial for those with myofascial pain or muscle-related discomfort.
Stretch and Spray
Stretch and spray is a technique used to improve range of motion and reduce pain in the neck and jaw. Our orofacial pain therapists apply a topical analgesic spray to the affected area, followed by gentle stretching exercises, which can help relax muscles and alleviate pain.
Our orofacial pain therapists may recommend oral health practices such as teeth grinding prevention, mouth guard use, and relaxation techniques to reduce tension in the jaw and face. By addressing these contributing factors, patients can experience improved jaw function and reduced discomfort.
Post-Orthodontic Surgery Rehab
