Did you know the scientific literature reports that between 55 and 80% of all patients with TMJ have neck pain?   I find patients in my office suffer from what is called anterior translation which is when your head is forward relative to your torso.  This causes tension at the base of the skull and because they are in such close proximity,  many of these patients also have TMJ issues.  Working collaboratively with a dentist can make sure the patient is receiving complete and thorough care.  

Patients appreciate when their healthcare providers are working together to get them well.  I will work collaboratively with the dentist to help in any way I can toward the patients’ recovery.  This may include teaching proper neck exercise and strengthening,  postural rehabilitation, and physical therapy modalities.

...I am ecstatic about the results [of treatment]. My back pain is gone. My headaches are history. My posture is improved and my recovery time is shortened.
