CMD (Cranio-Mandibular Dysfunction)
Having upper and lower jawbones that don't align properly can be painful. Common symptoms include clicking or popping sounds when chewing or yawning. Grinding teeth while sleeping as well as pain felt in the neck or ears are also common.
Cranio-Mandibular Dysfunction – also referred to as temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) – represents the pain and dysfunction of the muscles of mastication (the muscles that move the jaw) and the craniomandibular joints (the joints which connect the mandible to the skull).
Back pain, migraine headaches and even stiff necks are often attributed to CMD.
With the help of advanced treatment methods, misalignments can be corrected. Gentle treatments help alleviate the problem.
