This was a young man who traveled from Ireland to Florida to receive FCR. His condition was treated using endo-nasal balloon adjustments, PEMF, Glutathione nebulizer, and Functional Chiropractic Neurology. Dr. John Lieurance is leading the way in the treatment of Palatal Myoclonus and has treated more of these cases world wide than any other hospital, clinic, or single physician.

INTRODUCTION: Various presentations of essential palatal myoclonus, a condition characterized by clicking noises and palatal muscle spasm, have been reported in the literature. We are reporting the first case of essential palatal myoclonus following dental treatment.
CASE PRESENTATION: A 31-year-old Caucasian man presented to our Ear, Nose and Throat department complaining of objective clicking tinnitus occurring immediately after he had undergone root canal treatment on his right lower third molar 3 months ago. Magnetic resonance imaging of his head revealed no abnormalities in the cerebrum, cerebellum or brainstem making the diagnosis essential palatal myoclonus. He returned a week later, and 20 units of botulinum toxin A (Allergan) were injected into his left tensor veli palatine muscle. He reported an immediate improvement; however, symptoms recurred 6 months later.
CONCLUSIONS: Dental treatment can be a trigger of essential palatal myoclonus. Botulinum toxin injections are an effective treatment for short-term relief of symptoms.
