TMJ: A view from one of our qualified TMJ TherapistsMay 05, 2022
The Jaw... it’s a pretty complicated bit of kit.
So when it goes awry the most common presentations are often -
🔍 Head and facial issues
🔍 Tongue, swallowing and ear problems
🔍 Visual disturbance inc dizziness
🔍 Musculoskeletal issues
🔍 As well as, sacral and knee problems
👉 Compromised breathing/sleep issues
👉 Unresolving back and pelvic problems
👉 Digestive issues
👉 Hormone disruption
👉 Reduced performance during exercise and sports
Primarily because it is a mobile component of a bigger system in our bodies, know as the “Stomatognathic System”... put in simplified terms means of the mouth and jaw
This system is now seen to encompass more than previously thought, such as the bony and complex soft tissue structures of the head, neck and upper most torso and sacrum. Including -
👄 Vascular Supply
... as well as influencing other structures via secondary connections!
BUT.... and here's the conundrum... the puzzle of TMD is to discover if it's being influenced by what is going on further down in the body...OR... if the structures connected to the jaw are influencing what is going on in the body...
