How A Multi-Faceted Approach Will Help You Overcome Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) is a complex disorder for which doctors from both the dental and chiropractic fields have come together to agree that the most effective method of help is through a multi-faceted approach.

Australia’s leading TMJ treatment provider, TMJ Centre Melbourne aims to provide you with a range of help options from our two leading experts, who explain how a multi-faceted approach is necessary for properly overcoming TMJ.

The Dentist

The TMJ Centre Melbourne has an expert dentist on board – Dr Shah, who is a committee member of the Australian Chapter of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain. Dr Shah makes it more efficient for TMJ suffers to seek out care for their disorder in one centre.

The Chiropractor

Having a chiropractor at the Centre means that bone disorders such as TMJ can be overcome alongside holistic dental methodologies. Patients who visit the TMJ Centre Melbourne have the unique benefit of consultation with two of the most renowned professionals in this medical practice.

DrDowker, who’s been practising medicine for over thirty years, is ready to help you overcome this disorder and help you live a healthy, pain-free life again.

How the combined treatment will help you

By combining assistance from both professionals, the effects on your disorder will be greatly diminished. Moreover, the cost will be significantly reduced as you will only need to visit one location to receive advice and support from two experts in TMJ disorders.

With a dynamic and comprehensive diagnosis, the doctors at TMJ Centre Melbourne can assess and locate the precise origin of the pain.

Dr Shah will keep your jaw in a healing position using orthotics (plates), while DrDowker will provide low-force adjustments to alleviate any stresses on the TMJ.

Since the holistic approach was introduced, other symptoms associated with the disorder have been reported to have been reduced, which includes:

  • Severe headaches
  • Sleep apnoea
  • Depression
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  •  Irritability or anxiety
  •  Insomnia
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

What makes a multi-faceted approach to treating TMJ so beneficial is that as soon as your plate is fitted, you can have your chiropractic adjustments added to relieve all stress.

If your jaw pain has not subsided, you should consider contacting the TMJ Centre Melbourne today so that you can start living a normal life again.
