The Center treats multiple nerves, muscle, and tissue conditions through integrative and noninvasive treatments, including innovative ML830 laser light therapies that effectively treat chronic conditions such as TMJ. TMJ is the abbreviation for the temporomandibular joint, a pair of joints located on either side of the jaw near the ear canal. TMJ disorder often causes pain in and around the jaw and ear. In severe cases, pain may radiate down the neck and shoulders.
