Orthopedic rehabilitation in Kinnelon, New Jersey incorporates corrective splints, oral appliances, orthodontics, and non-surgical therapies to eliminate pain points at their source. When healthy bone and joint alignment is achieved, it allows for uninhibited motion and function all day long.
A harmonious TMJ and occlusion (the way your teeth and jaws fit together) can directly ease symptoms of:
- TMJ disorder
- Migraines and headaches
- Ear pain and tinnitus
- Degenerative joint disorder
- Chronic head and neck pain
- Restricted movement
Why Surgery is Discouraged
Oral surgeries are irreversible. When operating on an extremely complex joint like the TMJ, it is nearly impossible to achieve full function of the joint through surgical measures. That’s why experts including the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research advise against TMJ surgery when other therapies are available.
Non-surgical orthopedic rehabilitation is based on neuromuscular research and the relationship between each of the moving pieces of your orofacial structures. Understanding the close ties between the TMJ, jaw anatomy, and dental occlusion in turn makes it easier to identify sources of pain and address them through therapeutic measures.
