Using Your Joints to Stabilize Your Body
The joints of our body allow movement and provide stability to the human frame. The relationships of the joints of the body play a tremendous role in function and overall well-being.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complex, sensitive and important joints. It is also one of the most misunderstood and undertreated due to its tremendous complexity.
Treatment of this joint often directly and indirectly affect the position of many other joints in the body, especially those of the upper neck and cervical spine.
We use dental appliance therapy to assist in the proper positioning and rehabilitation of the TMJ to treat the condition known as Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD).
