Study Links Fibromyalgia to TMJ Disorders In a recent study by the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery, it was found that there is a strong correlation between Fibromyalgia and TMJ Disorders. The study found that 83.3% of Fibromyalgia patients exhibited jaw joint pain and over 30% had pathological joint sounds. Also, jaw muscle pain was found in approximately 80% of the cases. These findings would account for a high incidence of headache experience (97%) in these patients. Dr. Jay Gerber, director of the Center for Occlusal Studies in West Virginia, states that he is of the opinion that all Fibromyalgia patients should be wearing a NM orthotic and be using an Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) TENS in order to alleviate muscle tension and pressure in the jaw joints. Dr. Hill has over 10 years experience successfully treating TMJ issues that lead to headaches and other problems.
