Temporo mandibular disorders
Temporo-mandibular joint is a complex joint which owes its balance of many factors. The term "temporo-mandibular joint disorder" means generally a dysfunction of the joint with neuromuscular pain in the head and neck area.
Treatment concerns both the specific structural alterations (orthodontic treatments) and its repercussions on myofascial chains of the connected districts (rehabilitative treatment).Treatment plan of TMJ disorders is therefore made by the synergy of multiple interventions:
- Analgesic and muscle relaxants in the acute phase
- Orthodontic and dental treatment
- Rehabilitation treatment: rehabilitation of mandibular mobility and posture, associated with pain management methods, such as MLS® Laser Therapy, magnetotherapy, TENS on the painful areas, and treatment of muscle trigger points. Acupuncture and chiropractic may be useful.
