If you suffer from orofacial pain and are looking for a safe and effective pain management solution, our Carson orofacial pain specialist, Dr. Paul Grin, is here to help. Dr. Grin uses acupuncture to help patients with orofacial pain. Orofacial pain is a general term that refers to pain that is experienced above the shoulders, above the neck, below the orbitomeatal line, and before the ears and the oral cavity. Orofacial pain can develop for a number of reasons. Often, conditions like temporomandibular joint disorder cause orofacial pain. Toothache and other similar dental issues can also lead to orofacial pain. Acupuncture has proven to be an excellent method when used in conjunction with necessary medical procedures when it comes to managing orofacial pain and allowing patients to live comfortably again.
Acupuncture is a practice that originates in Chinese medicine, and has been used for over two and a half thousand years. It started spreading worldwide in the 1970s. For the past twenty years or so, there has been significant research done in order to test the effectiveness of acupuncture. Acupuncture has been proven to be therapeutic and helpful, as long as you are in the hands of a capable professional like our Carson orofacial pain specialist. It has been proven that patients who have received acupuncture treatment have experienced a noticeable decrease in jaw pain, stiffness in the jaw and face, and neck spasms. If you are looking for options to help decrease your pain in conjunction with medical treatment, our Carson orofacial pain specialist would be happy to show you the potential that acupuncture treatments hold for you.
