Validation From Japan?

added on: October 12, 2009

Our practice has been using the K7 Evaluation System by Myotoronics since February of 2007.  Coincidentally, in that same month, Japan’s Health Ministry recognized the K7 Evaluation System as a requirement for orthodontists to receive payment from the National Health Insurance Program.  Also, all 29 dental universities in Japan have the K7 system and 23 of 60 medical schools have one as well.  This is significant recognition for the neuromuscular approach in managing a patient’s bite.We use the K7 Evaluation System to help us treat patients with Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) pains such as migraines, headaches, facial pain, as well as head and neck pain.  Many of our patients who have undergone treatment with the K7 tell us that their headaches and pains are greatly reduced and/or eliminated.  Let me share some patient testimonials with you.This testimonial was posted on Dr.Oogle (a website for patients to post reviews) no 7/26/08:

“After years of battling headaches & migraines and spending thousands in medical doctors & testing, my 16 year old son finally found relief with Dr. Dan Barbat. Her advanced training in neuromuscular dentistry quickly diagnosed & treated my son for a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Every week following Dr. Barbat’s TMJ procedures , my sons headache pain has reduced. I can’t thank Dr. Barbat & her staff enough for giving my son’s life back!”

Dear Dr. Barbat:

I just wanted to thank you for all your time and services to help relieve me of my migraine headaches.  I have been suffering with migraines for over 10 years, averaging a headache at least 5 times a week.  The orthotic that you recommended has truly been a blessing.Thank you again for all that you did…

It is very gratifying for me to help my patients in this manner.  If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us at (586) 739-2155 or on the web.
