Suffering From TMJD?

Chiropractic care can alleviate the symptoms associated with TMJD. Our holistic chiropractic treatments relieve pain as a result of temporomandibular joint dysfunction by alleviating the pressure placed on the spinal nerves.

Problems with the muscles that control your jaw are known as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJD. Symptoms will often include tenderness or pain isolated to the sides of your jaw or extending to the ears. If you find you are unable to open or close your mouth without experiencing chronic pain, you may be experiencing temporomandibular joint disorder. 

Chiropractic care is effective as a treatment for this disorder. Through chiropractic care, patients are alleviated of issues in the spine, which in turn reduces pressure on various nerves and can alleviate jaw pain.

Continuous chiropractic treatment helps our patients avoid the need for physical therapy, anti-inflammatories, or other relaxation techniques.

What is TMJD?

Think of the temporomandibular joint as a hinge connecting your jaw to your skull. When working properly, it’s the pivot point that allows your jaw its typical range of movement. However, many people begin to experience pain related to this area.

What symptoms are associated with TMJ/TMJD?

Oftentimes, it’s difficult to trace the root cause of temporomandibular joint disorders. Jaw pain related to this issue can be due to any number of factors such as age, local injury, or even being genetically predisposed. 

Symptoms associated with TMDJ include:

  • Chronic jaw pain
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Pain when opening or closing jaw
  • Aching around the ear
  • “Locking” of the jaw.

Experiencing any one of these symptoms can severely hamper your life. Simple, everyday needs like eating or communicating may be significantly impacted. Fortunately, living with TMJD does not have to be permanent. Chiropractic care has been proven to provide pain relief.

Chiropractic care can alleviate the symptoms associated with TMJD. Our holistic chiropractic treatments relieve pain as a result of temporomandibular joint dysfunction by alleviating the pressure placed on the spinal nerves. Once properly aligned, our patients report relief from auxiliary pain, including chronic TMJD jaw pain.
