The temporomandibular joint connects the jaw to the skull. Those who have suffered any type of damage or injury to the joint could find that it leads to pain in the area. This localized pain is called TMJD, and it can cause quite a few issues. The Rio Vista Wellness Center understands the pain that this can cause and can offer treatment options using neuromuscular therapy. First, though, it is important to understand more about what the condition is and the other types of treatments that people may get.
Restless legs syndrome, also called RLS, is a disorder that affects some people and causes them to have an urge to move their legs. The desire to move the legs comes from the strange feelings that they have, such as a pulling, tugging, itching, aching, or burning sensation. Some have reported that it feels like electric shocks in their legs. Moving the legs and changing position seems to help with this. The problem gets worse in the evening and overnight.
Frozen shoulder syndrome, also called adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that causes stiffness and pain to occur in the shoulder region. The shoulder will eventually become very difficult to move. This condition is relatively rare, but it will show up in about 2% of the population. Those who are affected most often tend to be between 40 and 60 years old, and it happens to women more than it does to men.
Plantar fasciitis is a pain in the heel. In fact, it is the most common type of heel pain, and it occurs when the flat tissue band that supports your arch and connects the heel to the toes, known as the plantar fascia, is strained. This can cause quite a few painful issues, and most suffering from it tend to want help dealing with the pain, and as quickly as possible. A range of therapy types are available, as you will see, including neuromuscular therapy and the MyoKinesthetic System offered at Rio Vista Wellness Center.
