Our expertise comes from our own experience with having the Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). It has led us to do extensive research for over 10 years, through consulting with leading doctors and dentists in the field, by reading the scientific literature, and by hands-on experience, having tackled 200+ cases within a private TMD forum.
TMD is an under researched and under recognised medical condition, and few doctors or dentists have a high rate of treatment success. Hence, a common scenario is many TMD sufferers will begin with a wild goose chase, going from one physician to another, only to find that no one provider truly understands the condition or is capable of treating it.
As a result, not only does the patient become more damaged by each unsuitable treatment, they also feel profound helplessness and anxiety from being unable to find “the right doctor”. The truth is that there is no “one right doctor” who will “fix you”. Instead, you need to become your own doctor, be able to question what doctors suggest to you, and take charge of your health and healing.
We want to reduce your pain and suffering by coming alongside you as your personal TMD coach or consultant, who will identify the nature of your condition, provide you a big picture of available treatments, and advice you on what to avoid based on the nature of your condition. In short, we will empower you with the knowledge to help you help yourself.
The advice provided is not medical advice. The advice cannot replace a physician or dentist’s opinion. You will still need to consult with a physician or dentist. The advice is provided only to empower you to make better decisions in your quest to get better. We are not liable for any loss or damage of any kind.
