If you have seen many doctors with no resolution
You are not alone!
These are stories about actual patients*, treated by Dr. Cooper, each of whom had different symptoms caused by a very common illness, called temporomandibular disorder (TMD).
While TMJ / TMD afflicts people in different ways, it is almost always treatable. With the types of therapy described in this web site, using computerized testing and state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, we were able to create a neuromuscular-based occlusion -- a healthy bite -- that provided lasting relief. While treatments and outcomes of these patients varied, no one required medication or surgery!
I'm sharing my own story on this web site as well, as it illustrates my personal experience with TMJ / TMD -- how it affected my life and the lives of those close to me -- and how the neuromuscular treatment I embraced became the centerpiece of my professional practice.
