TMJ Relief and Neck Pain Relief in Wake Forest, NC
Temporomandibular disorders or TMJ Pain are often associated with headache and neck pain.
In research studies, cervical posture is related to different factors of the body such as craniofacial morphology and temporomandibular dysfunction (TMJ pain).
This means the posture of your neck can be affecting your jaw and vice-versa!
The choice to deal also with TMD is because the relationship between temporomandibular joint “status” and head-neck posture should be investigated, within the craniocervical mandibular unit.
Some studies, but not all, find correlation between the presence of symptoms of craniocervical dysfunction and temporomandibular disorders. Clinically, we can assess both areas of the body and determine how related they are, or how unrelated they are, in order to provide you treatments that are best suited to you.
Basically, this means we do not have a cookie cutter approach but tailor all treatments to your presentation!
