TREATMENT OF TRAUMATICALLY
INDUCED TEMPOROMANDIBULAR DISORDERS, MYOFASCIAL PAIN AND THE
RELATED POST TRAUMATIC HEADACHES.
This web site is
devoted to the evaluation and treatment of traumatic temporomandibular
joint injuries (TMJ), myofascial pain and the related post-traumatic
headaches. By far, the leading cause of temporomandibular disorders
(properly called TMD) is direct trauma to the head, neck,
face, and jaws, and whiplash injuries from motor vehicle accidents
injuries produce a variety of symptoms that often confuse doctors due to a
lack of understanding of the anatomic and physiologic complexity of the
injury. For instance, this condition may easily be confused with
migraine (vascular) or tension type headaches, or an ear infection.
Additionally, fatigue and anxiety play a role in perpetuating the cycle
of pain surrounding TMDs. Finally, undiagnosed referred pain can further cloud the picture. This site
hopes to shed light on the proper evaluation and treatment of this
often misdiagnosed and under-diagnosed condition
