The Joint Vibration Analysis or “JVA” is a quick non-invasive test to examine the health of the TMJs. It works by measuring the vibrations in the joint and allows Dr.Munkel to detect the presence of TMJ disc problems. A normal, healthy joint will not produce any vibrations, whereas unhealthy joints will produce vibrations. The JVA will assist in identifying both the severity and the type of problem with the joint.
