If you suffer from TMJ/TMD, facial pain, neck/ cervical pain, headaches, migraines, ringing in ears, sleep apnea, mouth breathing, tongue tie etc. call today for an appointment with Dr. Murdocco RPT, CFC.
Many headache and TMJ/D sufferers go in circles, visiting doctor after doctor, with each one identifying and treating individual symptoms; however, the symptoms of headaches & TMJ/D must be addressed together in order to get the best outcomes and pain relief. As an expert in his field, Dr. Murdocco treats the underlying cause of these symptoms for ultimate pain relief and long-term healing.
Dysfunctions of the facial muscles, mandible, and upper cervical regions can result in significant pain and impairment. Dr. Murdocco is one of 40 doctors in the country trained through the University of St. Augustine in treating these dysfunctions. If you’re experiencing TMJ, disc displacement, popping/clicking of the jaw, neck pain, headaches, tinnitus, migraines, or jaw pain, you will be in the best hands for lasting solutions.
Myofunctional therapy can address problems related to the tongue and oral-motor region. Dysfunctions include tongue ties, sleep apnea, difficulty chewing, lisp, and open mouth breathing in children and adults.
TMJ/D dysfunction is strongly related to posture and alignment dysfunctions such as forward head posture, rounded shoulders, military neck, reversed cervical spine, and hyper-mobile spine, to name a few. Reach out to Tristar, and Dr. Murdocco will work with you to align your body to move correctly and relieve posture-related pain.
Healthy posture and breathing are the keys to disease prevention and overall wellness. Breathing dysfunctions, such as asthma, open-mouth breathing, and sleep apnea, can impede cell oxygenation and produce both immediate problems like low-tone headaches, anxiety, migraines, and TMJ, as well as long-term problems through its role in disease processes. Postural respiration involves identifying why current breathing patterns are inefficient and implementing the correct techniques for future healthy breathing.
Migraines and headaches can significantly reduce quality of life and impede daily functioning. Through targeted massage, manual therapy, cranio-cervical and cranio-sacral therapy, Dr. Murdocco is able to reduce the muscle spasms and misalignment that cause headaches and migraines--stopping them at their source. He can treat migraine headaches, sinus headaches, tension headaches, cluster headaches, and mixed tension migraines.
