Physical Therapy Doctor and Head Injury Survivor Uses Experiences to Write New Book: Temporomandibular Joint Disorders: One Name for Two Diagnoses

Out of Alaska comes Dr. Catherine Mormile, a new leader in health care with her bold, new book, which explains that temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) are really one word for two diagnoses. One diagnosis, joint TMD presents with measurable structural damage to the cartilage, bones, and ligaments of the joint itself. The other, muscular TMD, presents as a painful condition of the muscles involved in chewing, and often involving the muscles of the scalp, base of neck, and shoulders. With a background of stubbornly surviving near-death on the Iditarod Trail, academic excellence, and scientific inquiry, Dr. Mormile now offers her one-of-a-kind way of thinking and approach to the nagging problem of TMD to all.
