TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder) and most headaches are often due to an imbalance within the neuromuscular system of the head and neck region of the body. All of the muscles, including those controlling jaw movements act in concert to maintain a healthy postural relationship between the head, neck, and spine. When any of these muscles are strained whether from injury or malocclusion the synergy is destroyed resulting in an overtaxation of the neuromuscular system and chronic headaches/TMD.
We have been extremely successful in helping patients who suffer from these symptoms by providing relief from the associated pain without the use of drugs. By properly analyzing the neuromuscular imbalance and the utilization of proven therapies such as cold laser treatments, trigger point massage, warm ultrasound therapy, and occlusal equilibration we can restore the proper neuromuscular balance thereby providing long term relief from the pain. If you have chronic headaches, pain around the TMJ areas, ringing in your ears (tinnitus) please realize there are proven safe methods to relieve these symptoms. Call for a consultation to learn how we can help you and greatly improve the quality of your life.
