Types of Treatment
MUSCLE PAIN: The Posture Modifying Appliance (PMA).The PMA is a thin and comfortable custom-made plate worn against the palate. The PMA adjusts the tongue position, which in turn relaxes the jaw, and then the muscles around the temples, cascading relaxation in the muscles all the way down to the neck and back. This re-calibration of the muscle equilibrium modifies the patients posture. This is where the appliance, designed by Dr. Shevel, derives its name. Once equilibrium is restored and all the contributing muscles have relaxed, the pain dissipates and harmony is restored.
ARTERIAL PAIN: Minimally invasive surgery. When arteries are indicated as the primary source of pain, Dr. Shevel’s diagnostic method allows for these tiny problem arteries to be accurately located using three-dimensional image scanning technology as well as a Doppler flow-meter. In many patients closing these small arteries provides almost immediate relief. However there are four additional factors that may undermine the initial result: 1) hypersensitivity; 2) shunting (when the blood redirects to an alternate dormant artery); 3) idiosyncrasies of each individuals anatomy and hormones 4) effects of medication.
