Why a Neuromuscular Approach is Best for TMJ Treatment
Neuromuscular science focuses on nerves, muscles, and the relationship between the two. A neuromuscular approach to TMJ treatment is a comprehensive approach that looks not only at the proper alignment of the jaw, but also the optimal functioning of nerves and muscles.
There are several approaches that can be taken to address TMJ problems. Many of these approaches, such as medications, treat symptoms but not the underlying issue. Due to this, the root cause of your TMD will remain untreated, allowing it to reappear in the future. TMJ treatment from Burke, Virginia neuromuscular dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban will address the underlying problem, providing you long-term relief from this common disorder.
