Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) affects millions of Americans, who are forced to endure all sorts of uncomfortable symptoms, including migraines, jaw pain, clicking, popping and even ringing in the ears.
Over time, TMD can take a significant toll on a sufferer’s life, making it difficult to get through even one day without having to take pain medication. Desperation can force some patients to seek surgical options; however, most people are hesitant to take this approach, because it is painful, invasive and can prove ineffective.
Because they fear the potential drawbacks associated with surgery, some TMD sufferers try alternative remedies, such as acupuncture and massage. The following video demonstrates a yoga-based self-massage technique that purports to offer at least some temporary relief from TMD symptoms.
Unfortunately, because it only targets the symptoms of the disorder, it cannot offer lasting relief.
Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins can provide patients with a comfortable, noninvasive TMD treatment that targets the root cause of TMD: an imbalanced bite. Why waste time massaging your own jaw, when you can permanently eliminate your TMD symptoms at the source? Call our office at 509-368-7788 in Spokane or 509-228-3998 in Spokane Valley, today.
