Transforming TMJ Treatment: A Neuromyofascial Science Approach

click to open AI Abstract...


Chronic TMJ and jaw pain, experienced by many including well-known personalities such as Clay Aiken and LeAnn Rimes, frequently originate from complex neuromuscular disorders triggered by physical traumas, including neck injuries and concussions. This examination sheds light on the widespread challenge of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), underscoring its ties to physical trauma. My approach to addressing TMJ centers on a comprehensive understanding of the interplay between head, neck, and jaw disorders. Through a process of reverse-engineering the causes of TMJ and targeting these foundational issues with specialized rehabilitative care, I have formulated strategies that not only alleviate but can potentially resolve TMJ symptoms. Stressing the critical need for early intervention, this methodology aims to forestall serious outcomes such as joint destruction, charting a course towards recovery and long-term wellness.


Welcome to a transformative journey into the heart of TMJ disorders, guided by my expertise in Neuromyofascial Science. I’ve dedicated my career to unraveling the complexities of TMJ, a condition that afflicts a significant portion of the population with jaw pain, stiffness, and dysfunction. Through years of research and clinical practice, I’ve developed an innovative approach that views TMJ not just as an isolated condition but as a symptom of broader neuromuscular imbalances. Join me as we explore the cutting-edge treatments and rehabilitation techniques that are reshaping the landscape of chronic pain management and offering new hope to those bound by the constraints of TMJ.

Revolutionizing TMJ Treatment: A Journey Through Neuromyofascial Science

What did Clay Aiken, Burt Reynolds and LeAnn Rimes have in common?

They all reportedly suffered chronic TMJ and jaw pain.

Lets Take a Bite out of TMJ, also known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction 

Which causes jaw muscle, joint and dental pain

Jaw pain is quite common with some studies suggesting between 1in 4 to 1 in 3 people suffering jaw disorders, and it is commonly seen in a pain clinic and is associated with neck injuries, whiplash and concussions.

Given my focus on the diagnosis and treatment of complex head and neck injuries through the lens of Neuromyofascial Science, virtually all my patients experience TMJ, with many unaware of their dental grinding, jaw stiffness, clicking, and pain—until it’s brought to their attention, of course.

At the LPC, I have reverse engineered the origins for most forms of TMJ, with mapping of the multiple sites that drive the muscles of the jaw to chronically clench or tighten causing a form of what doctor’s call dystonia.

In my opinion most TMJ has an element of dystonia where the muscles are driven into constant or near constant spasm. In most cases I can identify injuries involving parts of the neck, upper back, and facial areas that push the jaw muscles into this spasm.

With special rehab care applied to certain areas of the neck, spine and jaw, most TMJ can be greatly improved or completely recovered; however ignoring the problem can lead to total destruction of the jaw joint requiring joint replacement, and a very chronic pain disorder.

Reflecting on our exploration of TMJ and its profound connection to neuromyofascial science, it’s evident that the journey towards healing requires more than just surface-level interventions. My work embodies a commitment to pioneering a future where comprehensive, non-invasive treatments revolutionize our approach to chronic pain. By embracing the interconnectedness of the body’s neuromuscular systems, we unlock the potential for lasting recovery, empowering individuals to reclaim their health and vitality. I invite you to continue this journey with me, as we strive towards a world where everyone has access to the transformative power of neuromyofascial science.
