Back Pain and TMJ Syndrome
Neuromuscular Dentistry and Back Pain
If you have back pain that you haven't been able to get diagnosed or alleviate, consider a TMJ consultation at our Green Bay Dental office. Designs by Quandt can help you determine whether or not your jaw alignment is causing back pain or other TMJ disorder symptoms. We can then help you overcome these symptoms through customized TMJ disorder treatment.
What does the Jaw Have to do With Your Back?
TMJ syndrome is being increasingly recognized as a disorder that can affect more than one local area of the body. If you have any symptoms of TMJ disorder, such as jaw clicking, difficulty opening your mouth, jaw locking, headaches, radiating ear pain, or jaw tenderness and you also have neck, shoulder, and back pain, they could all be related. As you probably know, everything in your body is connected and, when something is out of alignment, it can have an impact on the way other parts of your body function.
Treating TMJ Disorder at Dental Designs by Quandt in Green Bay
You may not have expected that a dentist could help alleviate your back pain but, it's definitely possible. At Green Bay Dental, we offer a variety of services including neuromuscular dentistry. After assessing your jaw and your oral health, we can make recommendations to help you improve jaw alignment and minimize or even eradicate symptoms.
A smile makeover by Dr. Quandt and his team could also help with jaw alignment. It might also be a matter of an oral appliance that helps you train your jaw to stay in the optimal position. We utilize the TENS unit to help us determine the best alignment for your jaw and we have an overwhelmingly positive list of testimonials from patients of Green Bay Dental who have undergone treatment for TMJ disorder that has helped eliminate back pain, shoulder and neck pain, jaw pain, headaches, ear pain, and other unpleasant symptoms associated with TMJ disorder.
