Treatments of the temporomandibular joint are used for craniomandibular dysfunctions (CMD). This is a disorder of the masticatory apparatus, which is often accompanied by jaw malpositions.
Pain can occur in the jaw area. However, since humans react to malpositions in a complex way, the causes and consequences of such a malposition can be found throughout the whole body. For example, it is possible that a malocclusion and the resulting over-tension of the chewing muscles and the muscles surrounding the cervical spine can cause functional problems in the spine, the pelvis and even the feet.
Typical symptoms are:
- Unilateral and bilateral headache or chewing pain
- Neck and shoulder tensions
- Teeth grinding and cracking in the temporomandibular joint
- Tinnitus – dizziness – reduced mouth opening
- We work holistically. This means that we not only alleviate your symptoms, but also work out a behaviour and exercise programme that minimises the cause of your symptoms.
Before rehabilitation, the most important thing is a visit to your dentist, who will check the occlusion and possible causes, e.g. due to tooth misalignment.
We will gladly recommend a suitable doctor for your symptoms.
