Problems With Your TMJ, Temporomandibular Joint, Are Very Disrupting To Your Life and Thankfully Can Be Helped With Biocranial and Neurocranial Restructuring Therapies.

TMJ dysfunction and TMD both describe painful conditions that affect both men and women.

An estimated 10 million. Americans suffer from temporomandibular (TMJ) syndrome is a condition in which the temporomandibular joint does not function properly. This is the joint that connects the temporal bone (the bone that forms the sides of the skull) with the mandible (the jawbone). This painful affliction produces pain in the muscles and joints of the jaw that sometimes radiates to the face, neck, and shoulder. There may also be difficulty opening the mouth all the way.

 

TMJ and TMD may have multiple causes and come in cycles.

It may be temporary and occasional, but for some, it becomes painfully significant and long-term. The problems or symptoms may begin in childhood. The distress of the pain may become more apparent after a car wreck, some injury to the head, or pain brought on by long periods of stress.

 

Symptoms include pain in the jaw as the mouth is opened and closed, awareness of constant tension in the jaw and difficulty in opening the mouth all the way.

Patients with these symptoms frequently complain of headaches, toothaches, dizziness, feelings of pain and pressure behind the eyes. Some patients may experience ringing in the ears and pain.

 

Most people experience TMJ and TMD because of stress or as a result of poor bite.

A common stress symptom is "bruxism" described as clenching and grinding, of the teeth. Another common cause is dental and orthodontic work. TMJ and TMD cars be further aggravated by poor habits (bad posture) or work habits (cradling the telephone between shoulder and jaw).

 

Hypoglycemia is also a contributing factor in TMJ and TMD.

People with low blood sugar levels tend to clench and grind their teeth. Diagnosis is not standardized. The patient generally provides initial TMJ symptoms in 90% of the cases. The physician continues with an examination of the face and jaw using techniques of sight, feel, and sound.

 

Effective treatments for TMJ and TMD exist.

This is because most people do not have degenerative TMJ/TMD symptoms. Dr. Martin’s therapies are not invasive. Tissues of the face, jaw, and joint are not traumatized. These include self care such as eating soft food and avoiding extensive jaw movement.
