Many people suffer from the chronic pain associated with Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ). This is also known as Temporomandibular Dysfunction and Myofacial Pain Syndrome (MPS). This is a common problem afflicting more than 40 million people. These symptoms include:
These symptoms can be very frustrating for patients, as they have not found relief from other medical providers and have “learned to live with it.” We use the same computerized analysis that has been used in medicine for years. The goal of these tests is to provide individual and precise treatment plans that most often lead to the elimination of pain. The underlying cause of pain is muscular. There are many components that may contribute to this complex condition. While there may be a biochemical and emotional component, a structural imbalance creates disharmony between teeth, jaw position, and the muscles that control the lower jaw. Many people suffer from this chronic illness. While some do not experience pain, they may have worn, chipped or broken teeth, or fillings. These individuals can also benefit from treatment. If you or a loved one suffers from TMJ pain, we invite you to call Dr. Rodgers. For your convenience we offer complimentary consultations so you can come in and discuss your concerns with Dr. Rodgers.
