TMJ The best cure is prevention, and prevention in many areas of health has to do with awareness and control of certain behaviors and attitudes. Some TMJ disorders can be prevented and symptoms diminished in many cases by receiving structural care followed up with some very specific self care procedures. The TMJ Therapy program was developed from extensive review of literature and research in muscular-repatterning, exercise physiology, rehabilitation principles, physical therapies, behavior modification, habit changing strategies, effects of joint alignment, bite alignments and occlusion, chiropractic technique and philosophies, nutritional considerations in inflammation control and allergy, hypoglycemia, bruxism, joint health, muscle relaxation, meditation, and overall health concerns, and the outcome of clinical application. This book is intended to be used as an adjunct with The TMJ Therapy doctor and treatment process.
