Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) is a growing problem, mostly affecting women.
Causes include stress, repressed anger, poor orthodontics and car accidents. It is characterized by joint pain, clicking and popping, inability to open or close the jaw, and headaches. Dentists and specialists treat it with night guards, splints, and adjusting tooth height.
Most of the time muscles are ignored (the masseter muscle is the strongest muscle in the body for its size). NeuroKinetic Therapy® corrective movement system assesses which muscles are overworking and contributing to the problem. The treatment results in a vast improvement of the symptoms and must be followed by the client performing the rehab exercises. Optimal results can only be achieved with client cooperation. We open and close our mouths thousands of times a day. Disciplined intervention is necessary!
I had TMJ pain for years. David Weinstock was recommended by professionals and other satisfied clients. In the first session, the tension in my jaw subsided along with my constant headache. He even taught me how to do my own intra-oral work. For anyone with a TMJ issue, I highly recommend David’s skill and expertise in this area.C.M., Larkspur
