Re: Tmj arthrocentesis
I can't speak on the arthrocentesis. I have had the myofascial releases done. They have done wonders helping me get through the TMJD pain caused by the constant muscle spasming. The Masseter and Pterygoid releases really really hurt when they are first done if you are in spasm, but through repeated treatments, I was able to get the muscles to "loosen" up. While I'm doing well now, I still get trigger point releases done when I start feeling the muscles tighten up again. In my case, the treatment was well worth it.
