Pain in the shoulder, neck, cheek or jaw joint, facial swelling, severe headaches, loss of hearing, tinnitus, ringing in the ears, pain in or under the ear, tooth pain, migraines, nausea, blurred vision and dizziness—these are some symptoms related to jaw problems, or Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD).
TMD affects millions of people each year, many of whom never receive the proper help to correct the problem. Recent or remote trauma to the head, jaw or neck, chronic emotional tension, or nutritional issues can lead to disturbed jaw function, which the body is often unable to correct on its own. The symptoms which result from the jaw dysfunction are frequently misdiagnosed or are treated with medication. The medication merely masks the cause of the problem, leaving it uncorrected and further damaging the body.
TMD occurs when the jaw joint becomes misaligned or malfunctional. Since the jaw issue is mechanical in nature, a mechanical means of correcting the problem must be utilized to truly get to the cause of the problem. Dr. Gondolfo is trained in jaw function restorative techniques, and will work to correct the cause of the jaw dysfunction by correcting the mechanical disturbances which exist in the jaw and neck.
