Posturology and TMJ

POSTUROLOGY AND TMJ - Temporomandibular Joint

“I often have to take painkillers…
It’s difficult to live with headaches, backaches…
Now I’ve been told that these problems come from my mouth.”

Posturology is the branch of medicine that studies the relationship between body posture and dental occlusion.

It often happens that dental malocclusion situations can generate similar dysfunctions in the patient’s musculoskeletal system.

Dr. Frabboni specializes in treating symptoms related to CRANIO-CERVICO-MANDIBULAR pains (facial pain, jaw locking, postural problems, joint noises, motor instability, and swallowing difficulties).

CAUSES, SYMPTOMS, AND TREATMENT
OF TMJ DISORDERS

The main causes of joint disorders can include:

Bruxism

Clenching

Arthritis

Malocclusions

Highly stressful physical and mental conditions

Trauma

Vision problems

Changes in the physiological alignment of the spine or limbs

Common symptoms may include:

Fatigue during chewing or just when opening the mouth

Joint noises when opening and closing the mouth

Earaches or ringing in the ears

Neck or throat pain

Temporomandibular joint pain

Headaches

Facial pain

Arm pain

Cervical/dorsal pain

Lower back/sacral pain

Dizziness

Occlusal symptoms

Treatment:

In the cases listed above, a clinical and radiological evaluation of the joints is conducted, along with the use of kinesiological tests. Generally, the proposed therapy involves a combination of osteopathic/chiropractic treatments and the use of a removable device like an orthotic or bite guard. This approach, followed for approximately three months, typically leads to the improvement or resolution of symptoms. Often, after this treatment and the use of the removable device (such as an orthotic or bite guard), orthodontic treatment or occlusion prosthetic rehabilitation may follow to maintain the achieved joint stability.
