Temperomandibular Headaches and Whiplash Auto Injuries

By Clifford Fruithandler DC

One of my favorite conditions to treat is temporomandibular joint syndrome. If you read other articles within the website, you'll understand how we treat TMJ and many of the underlying causes with Dr Fruithandler's TMJ Pain Away program. In a auto accident a hyper flexion, extension injury can occur, otherwise known as whiplash. The head is flown forward and back in less than 1/10th of second, which can create a direct irritation to the jaw joint, neck, ligaments and muscles. Pain with occipital headache come on which is a additonal stress factor. As stress increases, many people will clench their teeth or Brux to compensate for the pain, the end result is temporomandibular joint headaches.

The additional stress of trauma, loss of work, loss of transporation and the complications of getting one's life back to normal continue to create more stress, which gives more clenching, and then more morning headaches, known as TMJ Syndrome. Automobile accidents are one of the most common precipitating factors for TMJ also known as TMD or Temperomandibular Disorder. Our treatment consists of simple behavior modification, biofeedback and Chiropractic and Craniopathic, and Massage techniques in addtion to the TMJ Pain Away techniques which is done at home. The entire program is relaxing and pain free.
