cervical and TMJ dystonia

Torticollis (ST)

Torticollis (ST)

Dear Sir/madam,
My name is Pete. After a head injury case from an army boxing match in 1990, I developed cervical dystonia in 1995 and my head pulls down to the right. I have a lot of jaw spasms most of the time now also which started a couple of years ago which make it difficult to talk sometimes also.

A brain scan discounted jaw dystonia so i am asssuming after research that it must be just TMJ disorder. Could you please offer me some advice and more importantly could you please reassure me that it is indeed curable with treatment. Many thanks for your kind support and i really hope to hear back from you soon, kindest regards,
Peter

Tmj dystonia treatment dentist
by: Dave

Well, been having treatment with a Richard Dean in London for last year now with some benefit but not completely cured. Richard only now works from his Sussex clinic which is quite a way from where I live so now looking for another dentist who is proficient in treating cervical dystonia caused by faulty tmj. Only one name crops up time and again, Andre Hedger in Surrey. He has some good write ups so it's looking like. I will be having treatment with this dentist who has had some very good results with patients.

Many thanks, Dave. Great that it's working for you. Perhaps you could give readers some insights into what Dr Dean does that is different from other dentists.

tmj
by: Sue

Hello Dave
I too am looking for a tmj dentist who treats cervical dystonia, I came across your post when searching myself, I know someone who is having tmj treatment with dr hedger, and is having really good results, I myself cannot afford to pay for private treatment, so I'm trying to find a dentist who will treat me on the nhs, at the moment, A few cd tmj patients have just met up with some tmj specialist from america, who came over for a conference in London, the doctors name was jeffrey brown, and dr stack, you can look them up on utube, and facebook..I hope this helps you and would be good to know how you get on,

best wishes

Sue

Total Postural re-programming!
by: Anonymous

I am a British trained Osteopath- strong preference for structural correction, but recently figured out that sensory correction is needed to "cement" structural changes. I have done some work with an outfit in Montreal, Canada. Great great stuff! Check this out-

I hope some day you can go down this route! I took one look at your picture and thought of this! Good luck!

Adam Ridgewell, DO

There is nothing to lose in your situation, Dave. Thanks for your contribution, Adam.

Enquiry about TMJD and cervical dystonia
by: Dave

I am seeking a dentist who specialises in tmjd treatment for cervical dystonia. I live in the East London area and would like to find a suitable practitioner. Many thanks

Hello Dave,
I'm afraid I don't know the local dentists; I recommend you phone Dr Michael van den Bos, ask to speak to him personally, about whether he could help you, or recommend a local dentist.

I hope this contributes.

Dr B
