TMJ Berkeley
Softening Your Jaw

TMJ Berkeley -- The RIGHT work to soften your clenching jaw.

UPDATE: The Berkely office has been closed and moved to Oakland, just next to Summit Hospital.

I specialize in Eliminating Tendonitis related issues like Carpal Tunnel, Wrist Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow, Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, and TMJ.

Whether you have actual Tendonitis of the jaw muscles or not, it is safe to say that you have a Tendonitis dynamic. This means that you have a progressive pattern, a Downward Spiral of increasing tightness and pain.

What Is TMJ?

TMJ is the common name for TemporoMandibular Joint Disorder, can be an incredibly complex, and incredibly painful condition.

Caused by emotional and/or physical factors, the end result is chronically tight jaw muscles which results in grinding of the teeth, headaches, sleep issues, ache and pain in the jaw, jaw tendonitis, joint issues, and even dislocation of the TM joint.

Any successful TMJ treatment MUST address the physical issue left in the wake of the constant Downward Spiral.

Basically we're going to do work that will calm down your nervous system and make the ecology of your jaw muscles more healthy and happy.

And we will teach you specific self care that you can use to continue to stop the Downward Spiral and create an Upward Spiral.

TMJ Berkeley -- Who Should Come See Me?

Like I said, TMJ can be very complex. And at the heart of all complex dynamics there are very simple basics that weave through it all.

The work we will do is very simple, on one level. And it will effect the entire complex dynamic.

No matter how severe you TMJ is, we can get results. I'll let you know what we can expect to accomplish during our first session as I check out what's going on with your jaw.

Having said that, there is a point of severity at which I may not be the best choice for you. If you have severe damage to the joint, bone grinding on bone, that kind of thing, I can't directly help with that.

If your TMJ isn't that severe, we can definitely keep you away from that kind of damage, and most likely eliminate the problem entirely.

Also, I don't deal with Bite Guards and some other aspects that the right dentist should be dealing with.

Psychology and emotion can play a huge role in TMJ. From that standpoint, if it's something best left to a psychologist or counselor I'm going to leave that to them.

And, we might laugh, we might cry. I am comfortable with that, and you will always be completely safe working with me.
