Have a look at this treatment, it might be for you (not sure if it done in the states, I am in Ontario.
Google the line I have as the subject and you'll see it under iSTOP.
I have been suffering from constant severe temporal headaches from a TMJ disorder.
I have been in bed pretty much since Oct. with this constant pain.
I have done three treatments this past weeks and we have seen some changes. I have
tried many different forms of treatment with never any results, so I am quite excited.
I'll take any little break I can get in these headaches until we can get to the cause of them.
Just was thinking of everyone here and wondering if this might help someone.
The site is quite good.
Hope you all catch a few good winks of sleep.

I read what you wrote and it sounds interesting but no clinics in Texas offers this
procedure and I'm thinking Insurance won't cover it for another 10 years if ever, sure would
be nice if insurance carriers would cover up to date procedures, but as of now this is
probably a very expensive undertaking and it said it takes about 8 sessions...
Thank you for letting us know about this, sure hope it can help someone...

I am lucky to have 80% of my treatments covered to a max of $500 under my husband's coverage at work. So that is huge. This treatment comes under physiotherapy. I am thankful that it is helping even just a little bit. Hoping it can help others.
