The musculosteletal system is made up of the bones of the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints and other connective tissue that support and attach tissues and organs.
This system supports the body, allowing motion and protecting vital organs. As TMJ issues inherently involve the musculoskeletal system, treatment of TMJ issues necessarily requires a holistic approach.

Have you tried to stop chronic pain, but haven’t found a solution? Are you experiencing…
● Headaches, jaw and tooth pain?
● Neck and shoulder pain?
● Upper, mid and lower back pain, sciatica?
● Foot pain?
Chronic pain in these areas may be caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), sleep apnea and craniofacial problems.
The muscular skeletal system is completely interconnected. Sometimes pain is felt in one area, while its cause is somewhere else. For example, TMJ disorder affects the jaw joint, but pain may be felt in the teeth, neck, shoulder, back and even the feet.
That’s why the disorder is often called “the great deceiver”.
