Condition of the Week (1/30/2017):

Shin Splints

If you are a running athlete, you are likely aware of this debilitating nature of this condition.  However, you may be interested in knowing that this, season limiting injury is treated quite efficiently and effectively in our office.  The first step in properly addressing shin splints is finding the cause of the problem.  A loss of stability within the arches of the foot or reduced mobility of the ankle joint, coupled with the repetitive stress of running sports will commonly lead to diffuse pain down the front of the shin.  Our office is proud to say that we have seen incredible results with our high school and college athletes who have suffered from shin splints.  Addressing the biomechanics of the foot and ankle, custom orthotics to support the arches, low level laser therapy to reduce swelling and improve tissue healing are some examples of the treatments used in our office to keep our athletes on the field and competing in the sports they love.

Condition of the Week (2/6/2017):

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ/Jaw Pain):

First described by Costen in 1936, dysfunction of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) affects 46 million Americans at a cost of $4 Billion annually.  

According to Dr. James Fricton, co-director of the TMD and Orofacial Pain Division at the University of Minnesota, “About 40% of Americans have some form of TMD.”  Dysfunction of the TMJ may involve ear symptoms such as tinnitus, vertigo, hearing loss, ear pain and stiffness of the ear.  Pain affecting the neck, shoulders, arm, fingers, tenderness over the TMJ, crepitus, headaches, migraines, loss of range of motion, myospasm, cranial nerve dysfunction and other symptoms affecting the face, head and neck. I have been treating biomechanical dysfunction of the cervical spine and TMJ for the last 10 years and have seen great success.  The Temporomandibular Joint is an extremity joint, like the shoulders, knees and ankles commonly thought of in my sports practice.  Neck moility is closely related to TMJ function.  Our evaluation process involves making an accurate diagnosis first.  Commonly, this involves diagnosis of neck dysfunction as well as tracking dysfunction of your jaw.  Correcting the function of both areas, soft tissue therapy to promate healing and rehabilitation of the muscles that move your mouth are all critical componenets of the treatment process.  If you or anyone you know suffers from jaw pain, popping or headaches, please contact my office for help.  If it is a friend or loved one who suffers from this problem, you could help
 relieve their headaches for good.
