Treatment Ratings

    Almost Cured
    Stretching, Inversion Table
    Weight loss, Heat, Strengthening Exercises

The two best treatments for me are Facial Stretch Therapy and daily use of my Teeter inversion table. I use a heating pad at night sometimes. I try and stay active, go to the gym three times a week. I stay off pain meds as much as I can.
