Many people think they have to live with jaw pain, aka TMJ disorder. TMJ is your temporomandibular joint. Many times people get tightness, pain and aching at the joint itself, due to clenching or grinding of their teeth. Others will have problems chewing and then get pain. At times people might even have their jaw lock up on them. Individuals can experience tightness at the temporomandibular joint that can lead to tension headaches, sinus pain, facial pain, ear pain, as well as neck pain.
One must rule out dental issues that could lead to jaw pain. Chiropractic care should be considered, as we are able to work with the musculoskeletal system. We can do an orthopedic evaluation on both the TMJ as well as the upper cervical spine. We can evaluate the musculature in the jaw joint itself. This way we can help by doing certain therapies and protocols with chiropractic treatments to help relieve the individual of their jaw joint pain.
Some of the chiropractic treatments that we use for TMJ and jaw pain are muscle stripping, trigger point therapy, cranial sacral work, and chiropractic adjustments. At Voitenko Wellness we have had great success with helping people with their TMJ disorder and jaw pain.
