Simple, Powerful Self-Care Practices for your TMJ-Related Problems

Its not all in your head.

One in 25 of us suffer from symptoms of what is usually called TMJ but can also be termed TMD, TMJD, orofacial or craniofacial pain. These symptoms can include

headaches; painful jaw joints; difficulty opening or closing the mouth; clicking or locking jaws; ear pain, stuffiness, or ringing; neck, shoulder, or facial pain; tooth grinding or clenching; and morning jaw aches.

Though these complaints are common, the average sufferer sees numerous doctors and undergoes several treatments often with little relief. While there is no one-size-fits-all remedy, this book offers safe, proven tools you can begin using right away to improve your condition.

Drawing on her many years of practice as a physical therapist, training in head, neck and jaw pain, and work with dental and medical experts, Cynthia Peterson has developed a 10-step process that addresses the root causes and contributing factors of TMJ disorders. Her simple practices and exercises allow you to replace hurtful habits with the healthy ones necessary for long-term relief. You learn to

Lighten the load on your jaw

Correct your posture as you stand, sit, and sleep

Breathe and swallow properly

Soothe head and neck pain

Reduce stress and exercise with ease

Save money by avoiding or reducing costly treatments

Photos and illustrations make instructions easy-to-follow while the true stories of fellow sufferers inspire your healthful changes. Including information on getting medical care and choosing specialists, attention to the needs of children and young adults, and guidelines for preventing recurrences, this comprehensive resource empowers you to begin healing today.
