HEAD CONDITIONS – TMJ SYNDROME
Pain Relief for Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction; A Comprehensive Approach
When the jawbone or Mandible (the “M”) connect to the bones on the side of your head or Temporal Bones (the “T”) you form the TM Joint or the TMJ. When that joint becomes dysfunctional, you may suffer locking/clicking or limited movement of your jaw, stiff jaw muscles, and pain that radiates through your jaw, neck, face and can cause headaches. While it is well known that TMJ can be caused by abnormal muscle/joint mechanics of the jaw and neck, studies prove that in some cases TMJ can be caused by mechanical dysfunction of your lower back or pelvis and that TMJ syndrome responds better to a whole body approach.
If you suffer TMJ syndrome or other musculoskeletal disorders and would like to schedule an appointment with a Dr. Moona in Kitchener or Owen Sound, please call Advanced Pain Relief clinic today.
