If you experience pain, clicking or popping of the jaw, or have been diagnosed with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, we may be able to help. Most people know that chiropractic care can help with neck, back, arm, and leg issues, but it is also a safe and effective way to manage TMJ pain.
Other signs of TMJ pain include ear pain, headaches, jaw locking, jaw deviating, muscle spasms, neck pain, shoulder pain, teeth grinding, and arm tingling or numbness.
Some things that may lead to TMJ or jaw pain are clenching your teeth during stress, recent dental work, trauma from auto accidents and contact sports, and even some pathology.
Chiropractic adjustments for the jaw are pretty gentle, whether manually or with an adjusting instrument to help restore proper movement of the joint. We also focus on the jaw's masseter, temporalis, and pterygoid muscles.
It may only take a few visits for some patients to relieve their jaw pain. For others, depending on the severity and how long the pain has been going on, it can take more time and care. After evaluating your condition, we will determine your options and recommend a treatment plan if we sincerely think we can help. So call or schedule an appointment with us today.
