Patients who have facial pain and neck pain see physical therapists and chiropractors to help them. There are many wonderful and highly skilled physical therapists and chiropractors who truly help these chronic pain patients.
In many cases, the missing link is that only the symptoms are being treated. If you are constantly going for PT care and then your symptoms return, something else is causing the problem.
Neuromuscular dentistry and Neuromuscular TMJ treatment looks at the entire picture. So many of my TMJ patients have been in this position. A malaligned jaw joint can cause chronic neck pain, chronic shoulder pain, as well as headaches and facial muscle pain.
TMJ treatment should include head, neck, and postural evaluation as well as airway evaluation. This along with a computer assisted assessment, we can determine which problems are originating from the TMJ and which are originating from the neck or even the hip and short leg issues. From this information, we can develop a proper long term treatment plan addressing all these issues and work towards patient stability.
