A Different Approach to TMJ
Dr. Panahpour uses a multidisciplinary approach to health, head pain and TMD (a.k.a. TMJ), utilizing chiropractic, dental orthopedics, cosmetic dentistry, nutrition and cranial orthopedic manipulation techniques.
People commonly refer to this issue as “TMJ,” but TMJ simply stands for the jaw joint, or temporomandibular joint.
Temporomandibular disorders (called TMD) happen when the muscles and joints of your jaw experience pain that can be a result of a few different types of issues, from inflammation to a poor bite.
The interesting thing is that many other ailments than just TMJ can also be caused by an improper bite. With Dr. Panahpour's bite alignment test and treatment, patients have been able to overcome TMJ and a myriad of other improvements in body strength and the positive effects of improved lymphatic flow.
You have options for treatment of your TMJ. See Dr. Panahpour for a different perspective and less invasive treatment that may not (necessarily) involve any of the same appliances or machines that are typically used for TMJ treatment.
