I had a sharp pain in the back of my neck. I went to my doctor and he had me put my head back and open my mouth. Well, my jaw popped so loud and caused my neck muscles to spasm. I had a spinal MRI done and am looking into being treated for myofacial therapy.
Due to my jaw popping I think I have TMJ. The top of my skull is always hurting with head pain throughout the day. I am seeing a TMJ surgeon for an NTI device. Will this solve my pain? ....Visitor from MI
The NTI device is only about 50% effective, mainly for people who clench their teeth. If your joints pop and click then you have a derangement that needs functional treatment to correct. The NTI is only a simple band-aid. It will help, maybe, to quiet the pain, but it will do nothing to correct the joint problem (actually in some cases it could make it worse).
