TMJ

Jaw pain and the headaches associated with it can require specific treatment to the jaw complex along with additional work into the neck and upper body areas tied into them.  The upper neck and deep core are involved, along with potential contribution from the omohyoid muscle of the shoulder blade, so a full body assessment can be required to rule in or out all contributing factors.

My exam surveys the TMJ along with associated areas to determine the best areas of focus for treatment, along with predictors of success with conservative treatment.
