TMJ is known to cause constant jaw, neck and facial pain and even ringing in the ears. Generally, patients who suffer from TMJ seek out treatment options that promise pain relief. One type of therapy that patients may come across and subsequently try is Electro Therapeutic Point Stimulation (ETPS) therapy. ETPS therapy involves the use of acupuncture as well as neurology to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by TMJ.
What Is ETPS Therapy?
ETPS therapy is FDA-certified and works by relaxing muscle tissue and other tissues that impinge the nerves and create pain. This also allows for reinnervation of any neural pathways that may be affected. Combined, these effects allow the patient to experience an immediate decrease in pain; however, the relief is not permanent, which means that ETPS therapy sessions must continue to keep the pain at bay.
Though ETPS and other types of TMJ therapies can relieve pain, they aren’t the long-term answer to properly treating TMJ. The best TMJ treatment is one that offers permanent results and doesn’t require you to undergo therapy session after therapy session.
