Conditions Treated

TMJ Headache

TMJ headaches are characterized by popping and clicking of the jaw and ringing in the ears. A generalized pain in the face and ears is headalso commonplace, as well as a deep aching sensation that seems to surround the skull.

Treatment Plan

The treatment consists of a series of specific in-office stretching, as well as a series of home stretching exercises. We use a wide range of physiotherapies, including ultrasound, myofascial release therapy, fluormethane spray and stretch, and spinal manipulative therapies, which are all incorporated into the treatment regimen.

About Headaches

70% of all headaches are musculoskeletal. It is estimated that nearly every American will experience head and/or neck pain in his or her lifetime. 157 million workdays are lost each year due to head and neck pain costing some 55 billion dollars in lost productivity. 1.3 million school days are lost annually due to head and neck pain in children. Ironically, unlike lower back pain, most people do not actively seek treatment. Instead, they self-medicate or depend on prescription drugs for what is at best only temporary relief, and at worst, a form of substance abuse with its own medical consequences.
