Dr Chionh would typically begin by asking several questions about your medical history, medications you may be on, recent injuries, and other health conditions. Dr Chionh will then examine your jaw, face, neck, ears, mouth and throat.
There are five main pairs of muscles that control your jaw. Dr Chionh will manipulate your jaw in various directions and motions, in order to judge the extent of the problem. If a closer look is needed, an x-ray, MRI or CT scan may be taken as well.
With that, Dr Chionh will be able to diagnose your condition and the following treatment options may be recommended:
- Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
- Splint Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
- Other more complex procedures for more severe cases
