Dave and I want to thank you for the OSB appliance. I’m still amazed that he hasn’t needed one Motrin tab for his knees and that he sleeps through the night without snoring!

My breathing is better, the snoring is gone, and I have much more energy!

I have spent the last 6 years bedridden. I first heard of Doctor Robson from a friend who was also suffering from MS. He insisted that the treatment he was receiving was helping him. My friend’s MS was not as progressed as mine and I thought that his success might be due to this and that I was too far gone for it to help me. I was also reluctant to try anything else, especially because Doctor Robson’s treatment was unconventional to say the least. When I actually saw my friend’s improvement with my own eyes, I decided to give it a try. The first time I saw Doctor Robson, I could actually feel the improvement in my strength. Within the first two weeks of seeing Doctor Robson, he had increased my strength by 35%.

After 5 years with the OSB, all of the symptoms I had suffered since menopause (anxiety, nasal stuffiness, heart palpitations, brain fog, and high blood pressure) have been either alleviated or lessened greatly. It’s Amazing!

That little piece of plastic that I wear in my mouth has tremendously changed my life. Before my appliance I would wake up every morning barely able to walk my feet hurt so much. I limped to the kitchen and asked my mom why my feet hurt so much. She had no idea what was wrong with me. My back hurt, my feet hurt, and my neck hurt. I could find no relief to my constant pain. I didn’t feel like a kid, everyone else would run and play without being in excruciating pain by the time it was over. If I ran or participated in anything athletic trust me, I felt it in the morning. I felt horrible emotionally and physically. I didn’t know what was wrong with me, no one did. I tried getting help at the Chiropractor, after X-rays she told me that I was just a little out of alignment that’s all. So she recommended chiropractic adjustments. So my mom took me regularly to get adjusted. It helped but only for short times. As soon as I ran or something, I got right back out of whack. Concerned my mom took me to Children’s Medical Center in Cincinnati. There they diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis. So I started taking an adult dose of ibuprofen every night and morning but that didn’t help much. Between asthma, to arthritis, and bad allergies my family didn’t know what to do.
My mom found out about Oral Systemic Balance. When I went to see Dr.Quinttus I was shocked by how much he knew about me. He knew my personality and what I’ve been going through. So he took molds of my mouth and sent away for my appliance. When he gave it to me I thought there was no way putting this little piece of plastic in my mouth was going to do anything, but I was wrong. Literally as soon as I put it in my mouth all my pain went away. I was shocked. I couldn’t thank him enough.
Today I’m pain free and off the ibuprofen, and I hardly ever use my asthma inhaler any more. My allergies have also improved a lot. Thank you so much Dr. Q for everything you’ve done to change my life and help me feel like a kid again.

The benefits I have experienced with OSB are wide ranging. Some are incredible. Some were immediate, such as the relief from 15 years of chronic fibromyalgia pain in my shoulder and neck muscles. Within minutes of using the appliance my headache was gone and Dr. Quinttus and I watched as the swelling in my right hand subsided. Last year I had surgery for carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve relocation. After healing, the wrist and arm remained painful, compounded by psoriatic arthritis, which attacks surgical sites and connective tissue. In an hour’s time the wrist pain and elbow sensitivity were gone. During the first visit even breathing and swallowing became easier. Before that, pills ware very difficult for me to swallow and I needed to eat something to push them down. I even sometimes choked while eating. After a couple adjustments, my feet no longer hurt. Because of arthritis and neuropathy it always felt as though I was walking on sharp, jagged gravel. My feet were cold and looked blue but now they are warm and pink. I had the stiff walk of an old man with feet splayed outwardly. Now I can walk with normal posture. Speaking of posture, my head and neck are no longer forward but in proper alignment. I now rest more comfortably in bed because my feet are no longer freezing and the ‘restless legs’ syndrome is gone! Also, my snoring has been reduced. Another problem I had was extreme intolerance to cold weather and even sensitivity to air conditioning. That has completely changed. Now very often I prefer a wind breaker over an insulated coat, as I did years ago. The psoriatic arthritis, which has never responded significantly to any drug therapy, has been severe and unrelenting for 15 years. I still have it but it is a great deal less intense even without medications. Getting in and out of a car is not the painful, embarrassing effort it had been. My wife documented that the color has come back into my face and my expression and mood are much more relaxed. I agree. I am a much happier man now and I can attribute all of these positive, unbelievable changes to the OSB appliance. I have my life back.

Hi, I am Mrs. Thompson, I was referred here after struggling with my voice and pain in my shoulder, neck, and back for over 2 ½ years!! These problems caused me not to sleep at night, I often woke up choking and experienced a great deal of pain. I was not able to hold a conversation over the telephone, for the past year, although my voice isn’t perfect, it is 60% improved. I can talk on the phone throughout the day. Before finding Dr. Robson and team, I truly thought I was going to lose my voice. This office has made a powerful impact on my life, my spirit, my family, and my work. I will never be able to repay what and how this team has improved my quality of life. Thank you for all you do. I Love U

Immediately, when Doctor Robson put the splint in my mouth, I felt a release in my throat. A wave of relaxation engulfed my body. Instantly breathing took no effort. Living in the fog of breathlessness for years, I mistook even daytime breathing effort for ‘normal’ and now realize that I was struggling for air even while awake.

I just wanted to tell you how much better I feel after being fitted for my OSB appliance. After years of tennis, aerobic dancing, and working as a nurse, I had severe pain in my legs, especially the knee and hip joints. I was always thinking about how I needed to sit down to ease the pain. Shopping trips were very short with many breaks for rest. Friends were concerned about my lack of ability to keep up. I even thought about selling my home, because the laundry and my office were on the lower level, and going up and down the stairs was painful. I also had a chronic pain in the left side of my neck. I was taking copious amounts of Tylenol, which also worried me. I also had sought treatment for my chronic fatigue during the day. Since I had restless leg syndrome also, I was referred to a sleep specialist and had a sleep study. It showed that I had a mild case of sleep apnea, but kept waking up to night time pain and jerking movement in my legs. It was interfering with my sleep, and I found that I was falling asleep at stop signs on my way home from work! And what was the doctor’s treatment? Requip, which did help the pain and leg movements but made me drowsy during the day.
I had my first appointment with you in October of 2007, and got my appliance a few weeks later. I never thought a plastic mouth appliance could change my life so drastically, but I am living proof that it did! I no longer have pain in my legs, hips and knees nor a chronic neck pain, and I have no symptoms of RLS. Here is another example of the change in my life. I could never “sleep in.” The pain in my hips would always cause me to get up early. Sleeping past 7:30 a.m. was unheard of. Now I can experience the joy of sleeping in on my days off. I am well rested and have a lot more energy.

My sleeping dilemma started a few years ago at the age of 30. I didn’t know what was wrong; I only knew something was wrong. I would wake up many times during the night with my heart racing and nearly out of breath. Other times I would stop breathing and my wife would shake me to see if I was still alive. My snoring wasn’t really snoring, it was more like a loud snort from the constant gasping for breath. I lost so much energy I could barely stay awake during a work day or drive home on my daily commute.
A CPAP machine and mask was prescribed to alleviate the sleep apnea. Although I used the CPAP machine, I hated everyday of it.
I anticipated the arrival of the OSB appliance. It was fitted and my breathing instantly changed from a shallow, forced breath to a full, natural, and deep breath without effort. This is the most restful sleep I’ve had in 7 years.

I have been wearing the OSB mouthpiece since February 2005. Prior to the device I had a headache ranging from mild to severe migraine for 28 days out of the month. I now average only one or two days of having a mild headache per month. I also had chronic neck and left shoulder pain that extended down my left arm and caused carpal tunnel. There were days, too many to count, that all I could do was take a muscle relaxer and go to bed for the day. To say the least life was difficult for this mother of four. I have gone to great lengths to rid myself of these headaches over the past eight years. I have been to two chiropractors, two acupuncturists (one western and one Chinese). I have been prescribed migraine medication, muscle relaxers, anti inflammatory, Sudafed, Excedrin, and multiple others over the medications. I have gone to physical therapy three times and been injected with cortisone shots numerous times. So I guess you could say I actively sought treatment. I would recommend the OSB device to anyone who has headaches and muscular pain that want their life back.
