What is TruDenta Rehabilitation Therapy?
The TruDenta process first begins with comprehensive diagnosis to paint a clear picture of what is happening to cause the issues. With the number of known causes, this is an important step. This diagnosis includes force and range of motion analysis, symptoms and headache history, and a muscle exam.
Once a diagnosis has been made, and the cause of the problem found, the treatment process can begin. The treatment plans are tailored for each patient, based on the findings from the diagnosis. Some of the treatments that are used as part of this may include ultrasound, muscle therapy, trigger point manipulation, and photobiomodulation.
