How A Chiropractor Can Help with TMJ – Jaw Pain
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) is a condition that causes pain in the jaw, headaches, and clicking or popping sounds when you open your mouth.
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, it’s essential to know that there are natural ways to treat TMJ. One of those treatments is chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care is a natural, drug-free way to treat TMJ and other health conditions. When you see a chiropractor for TMJ, they will first assess your condition and then create a treatment plan that is specific to your needs. Chiropractic care aims to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and help your body heal itself.
Most people who suffer from TMJ do not know that a chiropractor can help them. 12% of people in America have had to deal with this, and many come into our clinic for an adjustment that relieves their pain immediately!
TMJ can cause a wide range of symptoms, including ear pain, headaches, and neck pains. It may also affect your teeth’s ability to chew or bite appropriately. You might have difficulty opening and closing the mouth properly because of jaw stiffness, which leads to tinnitus ( ringing in ears) and dizziness during activities such as standing up quickly due to tightening muscles around one’s head.
Suppose you suffer from TMJ, or you’re experiencing symptoms of muscle strain, such as jaw pain or pain in your ears or face, and it won’t go away after following your general practitioner’s recommended course of treatment. In that case, it may be time to see a chiropractor.
