The TWO Root Causes for TMD

The TWO Root Causes for TMD

TMD is caused by one of two things:

  • Trauma to the joint
  • Orofacial and Myofunctional Disorders

Trauma to the joint can happen any time!

  • Ball to the face
  • Falling on your chin
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Long dental procedures
  • Wisdom teeth removal

Orofacial and Myofunctional Disorders are:

  • Clenching
  • Grinding
  • Biting lips or nails
  • Poor resting tongue posture
  • Mouth breathing
  • And many more!

Addressing the root cause to your TMD will help improve the pain and function of the joints!

Our physical therapist Dr. Shay Nash is uniquely trained in TMD evaluations and treatment, for a TMD assessment, please schedule an appointment with her. In addition, a personalized care plan can be developed for you with various treatment options. Physical therapy treatment effectively relieves and manages TMD, even when the symptoms are long-standing and severe.
