Are you providing skilled or unskilled trismus therapy?
Skilled trismus therapy means the clinician uses progressive, safe, and tailored exercise prescriptions, rather than than the basic jaw mobility device instructions (7-7-7 or 5-5-30). It does not take a skilled therapist to follow those device instructions. A skilled therapist takes into account the patient's individual needs, as well as the pitfalls and dangers of trismus therapy via evidence-based assessment tools and therapeutic techniques.
