Craniomandibular dysfunction is an umbrella term for structural, functional, biochemical and mental dysregulation of muscles or joint function of temporomandibular joints. These dysregulation can, but don’t have to be painful.
The CMD can be noticeable through feeling of dizziness, headache, light sensitivity, panic attacks and everyday stress.
Craniomandibular dysfunction is in some cases recognized as a consequence of stress. The craniomandibular system seeks to relieve tensions in the masticatory muscles, the temporal muscles, as well as to solve the movement restrictions.
Symptoms of CMD:
- Pain in jaw and jaw muscles
- Problems with opening the mouth
- Cracking, friction and pain in the temporomandibular joint
- Headache and migraine
- Tension in neck and back
- Tinnitus (sounds in the ears) and/or feeling of dizziness
- Teeth gnashing
- Pain in the area of face
- Bruxism (teeth pressing)
- Sleep disorders
