TMJ (TMD) Therapy in Kitchener
Do you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Difficulty opening your mouth
- Frequent migraines or headaches
- Night time teeth grinding or clenching
- Pain in the jaw, neck or shoulders
- Ringing in the ears
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be suffering from Temporomandibular Joint pain (TMJ) or Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD). These conditions are caused when there is dysfunction with your temporomandibular joint which connects your jaw to your skull. It can become impaired for a variety of reasons, including injury, damage or genetics.
What makes TMD difficult to treat is that it impacts people in different ways. One person may experience different symptoms from another person. In addition, the causes of the pain may be due to a variety of factors. For these reasons, it’s best to have a complete diagnosis to determine the root cause of your pain. Once the root cause has been found, we can start to properly treat it.
