Your Symptoms Won't Change Unless You Do!

This book is the ONLY one on the market that will help you with all 10 steps to identify and eliminate common causes and contributors to headaches, neck pain and jaw disorders commonly known as TMJ. Physical therapist, Cynthia Peterson, wants to help you avoid costly and irreversible treatments and teaches you healthy habits for self-care and prevention, offering tips on posture, tongue placement, and simple physical therapy exercises that can reduce, relieve, and even eliminate many problematic symptoms. She also offers guidance on where to turn when more help is needed.



Of all the joints in your body, there are only 2 that most doctors refuse to treat and most insurance companies refuse to cover. If you guessed jaw joints, you are correct. Those jaw joints are technically referred to as your TMJ's and problems with them can include symptoms such as headaches; painful jaw joints; difficulty opening or closing the mouth; clicking or locking jaws; ear pain, stuffiness, or ringing; neck, shoulder, or facial pain; tooth grinding or clenching; and morning jaw aches. Though these complaints are common, the average sufferer sees numerous doctors and undergoes several treatments often with little relief. While there is no one-size-fits-all remedy, this book offers safe, proven tools you can begin using right away to improve your condition.
