  1. Hi everyone, I stumbled over this during one of my researches.It is "NOT A CURE" for parkinson,but alleviates some of the symptoms of parkinson.According to Dr Jennings an orthodontist,whose website explained the connection between parkinson disease and "TMJ" Tempomandibular joint dysfunction.The website is www.positiveparkinsons.com.He stated that with the TMJ dysfunction,a patient can present with PD symptoms,and by adjusting the jaw with an orthotic device,this can alleviate the symptoms of parkinson presented in that patient,mostly motor.This treatment was depicted on you tube video ,where a PD patient was treated,with positive outcomes.He explained that the functions of a very sensitive nerve,"the Trigemenial nerve could be disrupted in PWP and TMJ dysfuntion,I supposed.His video did not show if the patients treated had an underlying TMJ dysfunction or not.But it clearly showed that the patients exhibits balance,gait,coordination,muscle strenght problems.His website did not state the connection between dopamine depletion,which is the hallmark of PD, and trigemenial nerve. Not many scientific studies had been done to research this method,except one very old study,according to Dr Jennings.I would like to know if anyone has seen this video or read the article about this alternative therapy.Or has anyone tried this technique by a dentist.If so,did it help?Hoping for the best therapy with little or no side effect.
