To better serve you, I've put together answers to questions that are common for new patients. 

  • Is there paperwork?
    Yes, online forms will be sent to your email once a session has been scheduled.
  • What will my insurance cover?
    Each insurance company is unique and ever changing. Please contact them to find out. I am an out-of-network provider, which means your insurance may pay. The good news is that your unique healing experience may be reimbursed or partially by your insurance! Also, keep in mind those Health Saving Accounts they work too!
  • How many sessions will I need?
    That answer will vary depending on your specific needs. It does seem that acute TMJ symptoms can be treated quicker in less visits, depending on the mechanism of injury. The sooner you can address issues the better! A traumatic injury or fracture probably will take more time. Chronic pain/TMj issues can also take more time, however I have had some chronic symptomns that have decreased substantially with home exercise programs and only a couple of sessions. I will say I usually will treat someone 3 times, and if there is absolutely no change, we have a discussion on whether continuation would be useful.
  • Will I be better in 3 sessions?
    I am looking for change and response from your fascial and nervous system and how this may be corresponding to your physical issues ( pain, mobility, function). I am always assessing and reassessing changes in the body and each session and each case is unique. Sometimes changes can happen elsewhere in the body first before they show up in the TMJ. Often referred to as "the tip of the iceberg", the TMD is due to soft tissue imbalances elsewhere in the body, just under the water so to speak, but the jaw hurts, that’s what we “see”.
  • How long is a typical session?
    First session is 90 minutes for evaluation and treatment; subsequent sessions are scheduled for 60 minutes.
  • Do you treat post surgically?
    Yes! As long as you are cleared by your surgeon. In this case, a prescription with proper diagnosis of procedure and surgical report is most helpful.
  • Do you need a referral from my Physician or Dentist?
    No. In New York State, no referral is needed for the first 10 visits, or 30 days, whichever comes first. However, sometimes insurance companies need them and it is a good question to ask if you plan on trying to get reimbursement.
