TMJ or Tempormandibular Disorder may cause pain in your jaw and the muscles that control jaw movement. Things that can trigger TMJ are:
- Gum chewing
- Clenching the jaw while sleeping
- Grinding the teeth while sleeping
- Misalignment of the teeth or jaw
- Poor posture
Fortunately, Chiropractors are trained to help align the jaw through gentle manual and tool assisted adjustments of the jaw. Additionally, Chiropractors provide muscle therapy to the jaw muscles. There are jaw muscles on either side of your head that your Chiropractor is trained to massage. There are also jaw muscles inside of your mouth near your back teeth that can also become tight and painful. As part of the treatment for TMJ pain, Chiropractors are trained to provide (gloved) short duration muscle therapy to those areas as well. This TMJ treatment is aimed to assist with alignment as well as give you relief from pain.
You do not need to suffer with TMJ pain, misalignment, discomfort, and headaches that may be caused by these tight jaw muscles, your Chiropractor is here to help!
