If you’ve done any amount of researching on your own for TMJ treatment, chances are pretty good that you’ve come across claims for an all-natural 100% guaranteed TMJ treatment, sold by sites with names like “TMJ no more.” Is it possible that they stumbled Ton some miraculous treatment never dreamed of by scientists or intentionally suppressed by mainstream science? Yes, anything is possible. But is it likely? No.
Here are some guidelines for evaluating advertized TMJ treatments and decide which ones might be worth investigating and which ones are just a scam.
This is one of the biggest warning signs about any medical product you buy. In scientific medicine, nothing is 100% guaranteed. Nothing.
Why? The human body is too complex a system to guarantee that any treatment or technique is going to work on everyone who presents with a certain set of symptoms.
And TMJ is a very complex condition that can involve many systems in the body. Some people with TMJ may experience ringing in their ears and headaches, but no jaw-related symptoms at all. Other TMJ sufferers may experience jaw pain, neck pain, upper back pain, and headaches. Some people may have TMJ due to teeth grinding (bruxism), while others may have TMJ because of a car accident or blow to the jaw. These can affect your jaw in very different ways. It’s very unlikely that any one treatment is likely to give perfect relief for all TMJ symptoms.
It’s also worth noting that in many cases, these guarantees are not worth the pixels they’re printed with. There are typically so many exclusions and exceptions that few people are actually able to get their money back.
Know Them by the Company They Keep
Another good way to evaluate potential TMJ treatments is where they are advertised. If you look for all-natural TMJ treatments, you will find them, right beside the breast and penis enlargement creams, secrets for getting back your ex, and the only 5 ways to cure cellulite. And of course those all work, so why shouldn’t the all-natural TMJ treatments?
Is There Any Harm?
Do you have $50 (or $70) burning a hole in your pocket and you can’t possibly think of any better way to spend it? If so, then maybe there’s no harm in buying the e-book, as long as you don’t believe everything it tells you. These books not only claim to cure your TMJ, but they also cast aspersions on scientifically proven effective treatments. They can deceive you into avoiding treatments that may really help you, or setting you up to fail on any treatment you try.
So, no, it’s not advised that you invest in this type of cure, although you’re free to do so if you choose.
