Did You Know We Treat "JAW PAIN"

If you or anyone you know has jaw pain it may be TMJ dysfunction.  Most people do not know we treat this condition, but we have a great success rate with treating this condition.  

When the Jaw joint or the TMJ joint doesn't work properly it leads to tracking problems, clicking, and popping when opening or closing the jaw, pressure in the ears, and headaches.  It is well documented there is a correlation with TMJ dysfunction and tight muscles around the head and neck.  

Active Release Technique is one of the most effective treatments for soft tissue injuries and to break up scar tissue in tight muscles.  Treatments are brief and involve shortening a muscle or other structure, pressing on specific points, and stretching that area.  Most effects can be noticed immediately.  

Research has found 1/3 of patients with neck pain is related to TMJ dysfunction.  We have a high success rate with treating this condition so contact our clinic to come in so we can help you.
