Need to know more about TMJ Disorders as a Health Care Provider?

image-healthcareAre you a medical doctor, chiropractor, physiotherapist, massage therapist or any other health care professional, with an interest in TMJ disorders, or the anatomy and physiology of occlusion, jaw function and orthopedics dysfunction, (TMJ-D) with resultant symptoms in the head and neck?

Yes, that’s a mouthful of words… but you’re at the right place.

The ICCMO provides top level information about the physiology of the jaw function, the neuromuscular human system and the principles of neuromuscular dentistry to encourage health care providers to learn more about helping and treating people who suffer from Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ-D) symptoms.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jawbone to your skull. TMJ disorders can cause pain in the jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement.

It is very difficult to determine the cause of an individual’s TMJ disorder, which is why systematic diagnosis is extremely important to be able to decide on any specific treatment options.

TMJ symptoms can range from:
