10 years of pain vs. 6 months of care with Dr. Alkhoury – and the results are phenomenal
From as young as 12 years of age, this patient has undergone sleep obstructive headaches, jaw pain and had always suffered from jaw grinding, clenching as a result of the pain. When the only viable option was for extremely invasive surgery which was not something the patient was comfortable with, the patient was advised to go on life-long pan medication and accept that as the best avenue for her symptoms.
Upon meeting Dr. Alkhoury the patient was introduced to the phases of TMJ treatment and in 6 months she has seen results that she has not come close to in 10 years. She is very thankful to Dr. Alkhoury and considers his help to be life altering.
My symptoms have been going on since I was 12 so about 14 years and my symptoms were migraines every couple of days and multiple times a week and I would have headaches and I would not be able to sleep and I would be grinding my teeth at night and jaw clenching and my jaw hurt almost every single day.
I’ve seen about 4 different doctors, 2 of which were specialists one an oral surgeon and multiple dentists.
A lot of them wanted to do oral surgery where they cut my jaw in half and then my mouth would be wired shut for 6 weeks and I would have to do 2 years of braces before and after and eventually they decided that my jaw could not even handle that so it was not worth it – so they ended up kind of giving up and ended up giving me long term pain medication that I would have to be for the rest of my life.
They gave me a night guard and said we have done the best we can and let’s manage the pain and here are some pain meds that you can be on forever.
I heard the president of the TMJ sleep therapy center on doc radio and did some research and found the center and its services.
I’ve already completed phase 1 which is about 6 months of the treatment and already noticing a world of difference. Now I am choosing to start with phase 2.
I absolutely felt better a couple of weeks into treatment and I was able to get off medication that I was using daily for about 10 years.
I was commuting from Sacramento so totally it was a 3 hour round trip
Yes I am very happy with the results of my treatment – this is the least amount of pain I have been in a very long time and have had a lot of success,
My symptoms have improved significantly I would say at least 80 percent if not more –I only had a headache once a month which is significant from having them almost daily. It is truly life changing and I have had a significantly less amount of pain.
I would highly recommend Dr. Alkhoury to other patients – it has been a huge and life changing experience for me.
