Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) November 21, 2014
TruDenta, the creator of a diagnostic and treatment system for chronic headaches and other jaw-related symptoms, has reported a nationwide rise in the number of patients seeking relief from chronic head pain, neck pain, TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder, jaw pain, tinnitus, and vertigo.
“This year we have seen a 52% increase in the number of patients our practices have treated. Our network of over 300 doctors and their teams in 47 states are changing lives every day,” says John Harris, President and Chief Executive Officer.
According to TruDenta, this increase could be a positive indicator of a greater public awareness of the varied root causes of chronic pain, as well as a sign that headache and TMJ sufferers are increasingly dissatisfied with the side effects and low efficacy of temporary solutions like medication or injections. Finding proper treatment for chronic headaches is difficult for many patients, and like all chronic pain it puts those struggling with it at greater risk of depression and other illnesses. A study in Headache: The Journal of Head and Face Pain found that patients suffering from migraines were 60% more likely to develop depression than patients without migraines.
The complicated nature of headache disorders means that they are often dismissed or misdiagnosed, leaving many chronic headache and migraine sufferers unaware that their pain could be caused by slight misalignments in their jaw and teeth. TruDenta's diagnostic and therapy system uses state-of-the-art precision measurement to identify these imbalances, coupled with a drug-free and painless treatment system derived from sports medicine. If a patient's pain is being caused by dental imbalances, TruDenta's holistic and science-based approach can completely resolve their symptoms.
TruDenta is a comprehensive medical therapy system designed to resolve headaches, migraines, tinnitus, vertigo, jaw pain, and other symptoms associated with underlying temporomandibular joint (TMJ) imbalances. The TruDenta approach is derived from sports medicine, and uses a series of proprietary diagnostics and gentle therapies utilizing FDA-cleared technologies to pinpoint and resolve the root causes of dental imbalances. Released during the Summer of 2011, TruDenta is now in use at dental offices in 47 states and Canada.
