I'm scheduled to see Dr. Grenevicki in Melbourne next month. The reviews don't seem to be great so am wondering if I'm wasting my time. Has anyone seen him before or can provide recommendations of a different local doctor for this?

Everytime I find a doctor who treats my exact symptoms they are out of State. For example: https://www.drmikepilar.com/ describes every symptom, but is in NY.  I guess Floridians don't treat TMJ all that much.

 

A little more reading and it seems that MPS an non needle required version of acupunture, and cold laser therapy are successful alternative treatments.

Anyone ever try Micro Point Stimulation or Cold laser therapy? Seems that both items can be purchased relatively inexpensively if a local doctor or therapist can't be found. Some alternative and holistic treatment centers also seem to use them.

Let me know if you find anything. I haven't gone in for treatment, but I go through periods of clenching the hell out of my jaw, with most of the TMJ symptoms. Mine's stress related, I think.
