From the publisher of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome (over 100,000 copies sold) comes this indispensable guide for TMJ (temporomandibular joint pain) sufferers and their caregivers. With a comprehensive study of symptoms -- from locked jaws, severe headaches, and joint pain to nausea, dizziness, and even loss of hearing -- this book is a must for people who want to take an active role in their healing. Dr. Robert Uppgaard's six-step program lays the groundwork for healing and prevention of further TMJ symptoms. He explains what the condition is and prescribes exercises to improve the movements of the jaw. He teaches readers how to deal with pain, and then shows how to prevent painful symptoms by eliminating bad habits and controlling stress. Finally, he covers helpful diet tips and exercises to promote long-term healing.
