Mandibular and facial pain

Indistinct mandibular and facial pain is often caused by tension or dysfunction of the mandibular and masticatory muscles.



One common cause is craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD). This dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint can trigger pain throughout the entire body via muscle chains and nerve connections, and even considerably change the statics of the body.
 

CMD manifests itself through a variety of symptoms:

  • Facial pain and headache
  • Temporomandibular pain, clicking and restricted range of motion
  • Masticatory muscle tension
  • Tinnitus, neck, shoulder and back problems
 

Diagnosis and therapy

In order to be able to better treat these symptoms, we offer a special examination and therapy plan, developed by Dr. Günther Malek and based on a comprehensive and structured mandible function diagnosis.

Finding the causes

Multiple symptoms can often make a specific diagnosis difficult, because even a difference in leg length or a problem with the cervical vertebrae can cause jaw problems and facial pain.

To treat these dysfunctions quickly and lastingly, all affected areas must be accordingly balanced. 
 

This includes:

  • Occlusion, tooth position
  • Multiple or unilateral muscle tension
  • Interaction with the spine and body statics
  • Dysfunction of the mandibular joint and masticatory muscles

Mandibular function check

The mandibular function check is the basis for a targeted diagnosis of pain in the jaw and face, as well as of tinnitus.

This examination module includes:

Medical history and manual diagnostics

Mandibular function analysis via a specialized CMD physical therapist

Instrumental diagnostics

    • 3-D spine screening
    • Neuromuscular stress reaction test

Analysis and evaluation

Complete written diagnostic report including therapy recommendations


Individual therapy

With our diagnostics, we identify individual causes of mandibular and facial pain and can initiate targeted treatment.

To do so, several treatment options are available:

  • Medical osteopathy / manual medicine

    To cure dysfunctions of the jaw and body

  • Temporomandibular joint therapy / physical therapy

    For physiological repositioning of the temporomandibular joint and the entire musculoskeletal system

  • High-performance laser therapy

    High-intensity cold laser, with which even deep muscle and tissue layers can be treated

  • Acupuncture

    To relieve pain and functional limitations in the area of the temporomandibular joint and masticatory muscles

  • Neurofeedback

    To improve the sense, control and influence of the temporomandibular muscles and body posture.


Foot pain

Foot pain frequently occurs from physical stress, yet when resting, burning or stabbing pain can occur. [ more... ]

Knee and joint pain

Knee pain frequently stems from stresses like sports or long walking; often, there is a point that is sensitive to the touch. Such pain generally originates from an accident or injury, but can also be caused by wear of the knee joint. [ more... ]

Wrist and knuckle pain

Pain in the area of the wrist and knuckles are usually accompanied by severe limitation in the range of motion; frequent causes include tenosynovitis, arthrosis, rheumatism or diseases such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). [ more... ]

Pain in the hip and groin area

Hip and groin pain are often described as dully piercing, frequently strongest in the morning and improving with movement and heat.

Elbow pain

Elbow pain can often be persistent, and is frequently caused by stress, such as overstressing an arm during sports (tennis elbow) or carrying heavy objects. [ more... ]

Neck pain and tension

Frequently, this type of pain is coupled with a limited range of motion and can radiate from the neck region into the shoulder, arms or head. [ more... ]

Back and lower-back pain

Problems in the area of the lower back often manifest themselves as a stabbing or isolated radiating pain. [ more... ]

Chest pain

Chest pain is often felt as pressure and blockage, as well as trouble breathing. Such pain frequently appears without an organic cause (such as heart or lung disease). [ more... ]

Headaches

There is hardly anyone does not know about headaches and who has not suffered from these occasionally.
But: not every headache is the same. [ more... ]
