You may have temporomandibular disorder or TMJ if your jaw clicks when opening. One of the primary causes for this disease is stress, which can cause patients to frequently tighten their jaw muscles producing tension that eventually restricts proper joint movement. This causes those painful clicking sounds when opening the jaw too far.
Doctor Gomach has a protocol to treat this pain that involves a combination of ultrasound, stretching of tendons by the doctor, and tissue work which can have dramatic effect on improving this situation. Some patients may have night guards provided by their dentist, which can help compliment this form of care. These generally help prevent the pain from getting worse, but do little to actually cure the problem once it has become severe.
This type of issue can often be fixed in just a couple visits. Dr. Gomach has helped patients who often have been "dealing" with the issue rather than treating it. Treatment will be tailored to your needs as you get the chance to spend time with the Doctor one on one every visit.
Cornerstone Rehab and Spine can ease your discomfort and help you return to your normal life again, keeping you on the field, track, road, or even the course.
