Hi guys, I wanted to ask you when is a good time to start cranial work during splint treatment. I've noticed that since I started splint therapy a week ago, my face is even more distorted. I think it's compensating for 20 yrs. of having my jaw in the wrong position. Should I wait til my body gets used to the splint a little more, or would I benefit more starting it now. Any suggestions? Thanks--J.
Your dr may have an opinion on this so ask him of course but based on my own experience the sooner you start a treatment that compliments tmj dental treatment the sooner and better you will feel - it may help the body less resist what is being done to it as believe it or not it does have a memory of where and how it should be and needs to be "reminded" or nudged in that direction.
