Benefits of MyoEffect Treatment

The MyoEffect treatment separates TMJ symptions into two section. The first section includes symptoms 1-4, which are due to imbalanced facial muscles and a dislocated TMJ. The second section includes symptoms 5- 9 which are due to cranial strains, poor posture, and a forward head position. MyoEffect will help a TMJ patient regain space for the dislocated joints, reposition the upper and lower jaws and release cranial strains in order to treat symptoms 1-4. In addition, MyoEffect treatment will improve the patient’s posture and retrain oral-facial muscles to treat symptoms 5-9, which should alleviate all TMJ symptoms.
