Join us for a free 1 hour Webinar sponsored by Custom Craftworks, a brand of Pivotal Health Solutions.The TMJ Association states that TMJ Disorders are a complex and poorly understood set of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw joint and surrounding tissues and limitation in jaw movements. The trigeminal nerve (located directly behind the TMJ) is the most complex nerve in your body. The trigeminal and facial nerves work together to support the over 300 muscles, and all other structures of the head and face. Abnormal muscle function and a bad jaw position causes breakdown of the joint cartilage, abnormal nerve function, and changes blood flow to the brain. Along with jaw and face pain, this muscle imbalance is responsible for headaches and most migraines. Furthermore, approximately 20% of the overall population suffers from TMJ and about 90% are women although experts do not know why. TMJ has proven to be difficult to diagnose and treat and there is no single discipline associated with TMJ. Often, patients will visit multiple clinicians during the diagnosis phase alone. For this reason it is crucial that both healthcare providers and patients learn to recognize the underlying causes that generate and perpetuate TMJ pain .

After a life changing motor vehicle accident, Gail's career took a new direction in muscle therapy, specifically in regards to TMD, headaches, and facial neuralgias based on the works of Drs' Travell and Simons.  With a focus on intra-oral trigger points and the muscle dysfunction associated with these disorders, she developed what is now known as The MyoFree® Solution. The system is a life-long, self-help, pain-relief kit for patients at home to learn how to care for those troublesome trigger points and associated pain. Gail teaches therapists, and other medical/dental clinicians on the national level, has written several articles for peer review, has gained international acclaim for her work, and was even called a pioneer in this field by David G. Simons, MD, co-author of Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual. Gails email: gail@tmjpainsolutions.com  Speaker, Gail Falzon, RN
