Chiropractic Care for TMJ DisorderYou may already know that chiropractic treatments can help relieve back pain, neck pain and even chronic headaches. What you may not know is that chiropractic treatments can also treat a variety of other conditions. TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a disorder which the connecting point between the jaw and the skull becomes inflamed, painful and swollen. Symptoms can include pain while chewing, headaches, toothaches, earaches, clicking when you open or close your jaw, neck pain and extreme pain and stiffness opening and closing the mouth (some refer to this as “lock jaw”). Chiropractic care is a highly effective, natural treatment for relieving the symptoms of TMJ Disorder. If you have been battling TMJ Disorder, the team at Caron Chiropractic can help you find relief.

How Chiropractic Treatments Help TMJ Disorder

Chiropractic treatment can not only relieve the pain and discomfort associated with TMJ disorder but can also reduce the frequency of painful flare ups. Stress in your joints and muscles in your neck and even your shoulders can cause TMJ to become worse. Chiropractic treatments can reduce tension in your spine, which can also reduce pressure on various nerves in the area, providing noticeable relief from pain associated with TMJ. Spinal adjustments relax your muscles, relieve tension in your nerves and realign joints around your jaw and neck area. This treatment can reduce pain and discomfort without having to rely on pain medication or other more invasive treatments. Spinal adjustments are most often effective for TMJ Disorder if you continue them regularly, even when the pain has subsided.
