Comprovação Científica do Tratamento

Acaba de ser disponibilizado no Pubmed, a maior biblioteca médica online do mundo, o recentíssimo estudo feito pelo Dr Alain Haggiag e o Prof. Siqueira (chefe de Departamento de Dor Orofacial do HC- FMUSP) sobre o uso DIVA em pacientes portadores de Cefaleias: 

A new biofeedback approach for the control of masseter and temporal myalgia: Utilization of an awake posterior interocclusal device.

O sucesso do tratamento com o DIVA® se deve a uma associação de técnicas terapêuticas consagradas e eficientes na abordagem de pacientes portadores de dores crônicas na região da cabeça, como as cefaleias, enxaquecas, disfunção das ATM entre outras.

Os conselhos comportamentais, o uso de dispositivos intra orais (como é o caso do DIVA®) associados aos conceitos do biofeedback constituem, segundo pesquisas mais recentes, a maneira mais eficiente de reverter e controlar certos hábitos nocivos, como o Bruxismo de vigilia. Este último está sendo apontado como um dos grandes responsável pelo desencadeamento e manutenção de muitas dores orofaciais que geram tanto sofrimento.

O Dr Alain gosta sempre de lembrar aos seus pacientes os pilares principais que fundamentam esta abordagem terapêutica, são as “3 regras de 3”:

O que é o tratamento:

– Conselhos comportamentais
– Dispositivos intra orais
– Biofeedback

Como é o tratamento:

– Não invasivo
– Não medicamentoso
– Reversível

Os objetivos do tratamento:

– Conscientização dos maus hábitos
– Reeducação do paciente
– Melhora da qualidade de vida
