TMJ Disorder

The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is one of the more difficult regions of the body to treat. Our experience is that most patients who present with TMJ symptoms respond best when comanaged with their dentist (using a night mouth guard).

The areas commonly treated in TMJ disorder are the masseter, pterygoids, temporalis, suboccipital muscles and sternocleidomastoid muscle. The multi-faceted approach of treating the scar tissue and tightness of these structures and address any “grinding” issues typically yields the best results.
