TMJ Relief

A New Holistic and Noninvasive Solution To TMJ Pain

The National Institute of Dental and Craniofascial Research indicates that 10.8 million people in the United States suffer from TMJ problems at any given time.  TMJ pain can be caused by many different reasons.  Most patients report having symptoms following dental procedures, the insertion of a breathing tube prior to surgery, trauma, and clenching or grinding teeth.
The common symptoms of TMJ disorders include:
  •  Facial pain
  • Pain in the jaw joing and surrounding tissues, including the ear
  • Jaw locking open or closed
  • Limited opening or inability to open the mouth comfortably
  • Headaches
  • A bite that feels uncomfortable
  • Neck, shoulder, and back pain
  • Swelling on the side of the face
  • Tinnitus 

Our therapists have developed a manual therapy that specializes in addressing the TMJ and its related issues.  Our goal is to provide patients with a holistic and noninvasive way to manage and treat their TMJ Pain.  This is accomplished through a successful combination of manual therapy, neuromucular education, and self care.  This combination allows us to treat all causes of TMJ pain; including the anatomical imbalances in the structure as well as the habitual movement and holding patters.  As a result, our patients find a level of relief and improvement not found with other treatments.
