Acupuncture in Treatment of Facial Muscular Pain

By Johansson A; Wenneberg B; Wagersten C; Haraldson T.

Acupuncture in treatment of facial muscular pain.

Acta Odontologica Scandinavica, 1991 Jun, 49(3):153-8.
(UI: 91353214)
Pub type: Clinical Trial; Journal Article; Randomized Controlled Trial.
AT: UCLA Biomed W1 AC812
(PE title: Acta odontologica scandinavica)

Abstract: Forty-five individuals with long-standing facial pain or headache of muscular origin were randomly allocated into three groups. The first group was treated with acupuncture, the second group received an occlusal splint, and the third group served as controls.

Both acupuncture and occlusal splint therapy significantly reduced subjective symptoms and clinical signs from the stomatognathic system. No differences between these two groups were found with regard to treatment effects. It is concluded that acupuncture is an alternative method to conventional stomatognathic treatment for individuals with craniomandibular disorders of muscular origin.
