Subj: [kl] TMJ treatment and playing
Date: Wed, 21 Apr 1999 10:09:10 -0400

Hello everyone,

I have been lurking for some time now and have enjoyed the discussions
which have been going on.

I have just been diagnosed with TMJ and have to have treatment (being
fitted with an appliance) over the summer due to the migraines that are
occuring. I will not be able to play for a couple of months as they are
"unlearning" the habits that my muscles have learned over the years and are
retraining them afterwards.

Has anyone else out there experienced this? If so, I am wondering what
damage is incurred to embouchure etc and the rebuilding that will have to
happen after this as I have a performance planned for the end of summer
(about a month after treatment) and am worried about how this is going to
affect it.

Thanks in advance for any imput/comments
