No two cases are the same – one patient with jaw pain may have an endodontic cause, while the next has myofascial pain as the primary pain generator. For those patients with myofascial pain, Kent Trigger Point Posters and Flip Chart are efficient clinical tools to help establish the diagnosis and initiate proper treatment. They also serve as an educational resource for explaining to patients their symptoms and the rationale for proposed treatments. Many patients are surprised to learn just how often jaw pain, non-endodontic tooth pain, maxillofacial pain, and neck pain have a myofascial origin complicated by poor ergonomics, posture, and habits (i.e. chewing gum, holding a phone between the ear and the shoulder).
Kent Myofascial Trigger Points Posters are the most comprehensive, organized, and easy to use on the market. This product helps precisely assess, treat, document, and educate patients who present with pain of non-endodontic origin. The charts are based on the research of Drs. Travell and Simons et al. – Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction Vol 1, 2nd ed. and Vol 2.
The Kent Head and Neck Trigger Point Chart provides a fast and accurate approach to treating patients with myofascial pain. This myofascial trigger point poster is comprehensive, organized, and easy to use. Rather than memorizing every trigger point location and the associated referred pain pattern, the right chart keeps that information close at hand, ready to assist. We can apply research-based anatomical information to precisely assess, treat, document, and educate patients. Every treatment, we know that we haven’t missed a thing.
Beyond treating pain, we also need tools for identifying the underlying contributing factors. Often, chronic pain is related to daily habits, largely including posture and ergonomics. A posture analysis grid chart makes it simple to measure static and dynamic posture and reveal bilateral asymmetry. Posture photos bring a new meaning to the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Photos help diagnose and treat patients, help educate the patient allowing them to see what’s contributing to their issue. Seeing is believing! Whether it be a first dental visit, recurring hygiene appointment, orthodontics, or implants, the Kent Trigger Point (TrP) charts makes it easier to address myofascial pain. Successfully treat patients faster, while saving time and enhancing practice efficiency.
