TMJ or more accurately labeled TMJD is a collective term for a broad range of disorders displaying a variety of signs: radiating pain in the face, neck and shoulders, limited movement or locking of the jaw, painful clicking or grating when opening or closing the mouth, significant changes in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together.
Symptoms can also include headaches, earaches, dizziness, hearing problems and difficulty swallowing.
- Dr. Wisroth has had success with non-invasive adjustments and treatments for TMJD.
- The Journal of Oral Rehabilitation recommends examination of the cervical spine in TMJD patients, even without cervical complaints.
- These findings are supported by Cranio and Clinical Oral Investigation as well.
