TMD and Migraine Treatment

TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) is a complicated acute or chronic physiologic issue that encompasses a wide range of problems and symptoms. These joint and muscle problems are complex.

Symptoms may include:

-pain the joint

-pain in the ear, ringing in the ear and dizziness

-muscle pain in the head, face, neck and shoulders

-headaches and migraines

-limited range of motion of the jaw

-joint sounds (clicking or popping) and jaw locking

TMD may be caused by trauma, muscle tension, a joint disc issue and/or an incorrect occlusion.

Treatment depends on the cause and the problem but always starts with a comprehensive examination.  Treatment may include TENS therapy, ultrasound therapy, MLS/cold laser therapy, dental appliance/orthotic construction and/or orthodontics.
