When you experience an orofacial disorder as an adult it can often be debilitating, interfering with your everyday life. The good news is, after carrying out a course of orofacial myology exercises, you can be on your way to taking back control of your health.
Common issues we see in adults are;
When people are in pain, they recruit additional muscles to do the everyday activities of chewing, swallowing, speech and facial expression. This can increase pain and excessive strain in the joint and muscles.
Identifying and treating muscle dysfunction by toning and strengthening the muscles helps to reduce pain and improve range of motion. Research has shown that patients undergoing orofacial myology have a significant reduction in pain, an increased range of motion in their jaw and reduced the frequency and severity of signs and symptoms.
