Neck, Back, and Shoulder Pain

Neck, back, shoulder, arm muscle pain

Muscle pain, no matter where it is located, can greatly interfere with day-to-day life. One-time or mild pain can often be treated with over-the-counter medications, such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or aspirin, or with massage, hot or cold compresses, or stretching. Chronic pain, however, can be debilitating; back pain is the number one cause for people to leave their jobs on disability. Often, the biggest problem with permanently treating muscle pain is being unable to find the cause of pain. Here at Neuromuscular Dentistry, we may be able to not only pinpoint your pain, but also treat it permanently.

Gnathological neuromuscular dentistry takes the step further by focusing on the entire anatomical composition of the human body. This allows an understanding between how the body is linked. For example, the neck pain is caused by temporomandibular joint pressure from the jaw contraction as all muscles can be related to each other.
