Alpha-Stim® Patient Testimonials
Simply put, the Alpha-Stim changed my life.
- Gina McClure
In 1983 I was diagnosed with
temporal mandibular joint dysfunction (TMD), after having experienced
problems for years with migraine headaches, neck, shoulder and back aches
and an extreme amount of pain in the jaw area. The popping and cracking
noise accompanying the disorder was very loud and could be heard across the
room. Each and every time I opened my mouth whether to eat, drink or speak,
there would be a noise associated with it, sometimes it could be
embarrassing, but always it was painful.
The 1983 examination determined that the small cartridge disc that is
supposed to act as a cushion between the jaw joints was completely gone on
the right side. The one on the left also showed deterioration. I was told
that the grinding and popping noise I was experiencing was due to the fact
that bone was rubbing bone with each movement of my jaw. Surgery would be
I was told that I would require wearing two appliances (one for day and one
for night time wear) along with braces to correct the bite problem and even
after that, it was suggested that surgery would be imminent. For a mere
$10,000, I could get fixed right up. Maybe.
I knew of people who had suffered with the disorder and also had the surgery
performed. Their suggestion was to avoid surgery it at all costs. Since I
didn't have the $10,000 for the recommended treatment, I opted to suffer.
And suffer I did.
Over the next 15 years, I went through my day-to-day life with bouts of
severe migraine headaches, partial loss of hearing, neck, shoulder and back
I heard about the Alpha-Stim in 1996. I asked my current dentist to write a
prescription for one. At the time, my dentist had heard about the
Alpha-Stim, but had never seen it used for TMD. Simply put, the Alpha-Stim
changed my life. My life since has been changed totally. The first time I
used the device after being instructed on the proper protocol, I experienced
a remarkable happening. A miracle as far as I was concerned. With just one
treatment my pain subsided. I thought I was crazy. The pain was there one
minute and gone the next. I couldn't believe it. I was amazed. My dentist
was also amazed. I was pain free for the first time in years. No headache
and even more amazing, no popping or grinding when I opened my jaw. The
silence was wonderful.
Now with regular treatments, which take only a couple of minutes, and
following it with the CES treatment for 20 minutes, I can live my life
normally. It's a new experience for me. One I am thrilled with.
Because of your wonderful product, the Alpha-Stim, I am now pain-free.
