Successfully Treating TMJ with Prolotherapy

TMJ is a disorder that affects many Americans.  It causes pain and restricted ability to open the mouth and to chew.  In a normal temporomandibular joint the jaw glides easily to allow for speaking and chewing.  If the tissues that allow for this gliding motion are inflamed or misshapen they can cause popping and clicking in the jaw and ultimately may restrict mobility due to pain.

Prolotherapy injections using ultrasound guidance are effective in regenerating these tissues and returning the joint to its normal functional capacity with no pain.  I have been successfully treating TMJ using prolotherapy for over 7 years.  There is a way to resolve this condition.  For more information, schedule an appointment today.
