“Chronic pain is never benign. It is a malefic force that can devastate its victims’ lives and even lead to suicide.”
Looking For Pain Relief
Most headache or facial pain sufferers are on a medical merry-go-round in their quest for pain relief.
Because symptoms of TMD (jaw joint problems) and associated craniofacial pain can disguise itself as so many other conditions, it is often difficult to diagnose. Your “incurable” headache, ear or facial pain could be generated by your jaw joints, bite and associated musculature in spasm. We use a team approach and open communications with physicians and other health care professionals to deliver the most effective treatment options to the patient. The first focus is to address the pain, second to regain full function and third to stabilize the patient.
It is estimated that 1 in every 3 people suffer from one or more of these TMJ symptoms:
- Earaches, congestion or ringing ears
- Clicking, popping or grating sound in the jaw joints
- Limited jaw opening or locking
- Pain when chewing
- Facial pain
- Neck and/or throat pain
- Difficulty in closing the teeth together
- Tired jaws
