Jaw joint problems and its impact
The whole body can be affected symptomatically as a result of a misaligned jaw because the masticatory apparatus is closely connected with the human musculoskeletal system via muscles and nerves. Nevertheless, most people know little that jaw joint problems can be caused by headaches, tension in the shoulder area, dizziness and tinnitus up to problems of hips and knees. As a consequence misalignments often remain unnoticed and therefore untreated. Patients suffer without any known cause.
