Have you got jaw pain?
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) and jaw pain can be incredibly debilitating conditions, affecting not just the jaw but also the neck, shoulders, and back. Fortunately, chiropractic care can be an effective treatment for TMD and jaw pain, helping to reduce pain and improve range of motion.
Here are some ways that a chiropractic clinic can help patients with TMD and jaw pain:
- Manual adjustments: We can manually adjust the joints of the jaw, neck, and spine to help relieve tension and improve mobility. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce inflammation, improve range of motion, and alleviate pain.
- Soft tissue therapy: Soft tissue therapy can be an effective treatment for TMD and jaw pain. Chiropractors can use techniques like trigger point therapy and myofascial release to help loosen tight muscles and reduce inflammation in the affected areas.
- Posture correction: Poor posture can contribute to TMD and jaw pain, so we may also work to correct your posture. This can involve exercises to strengthen the muscles that support the jaw and neck, as well as adjustments to the spine to improve overall posture.
- Lifestyle changes: Lifestyle changes to help manage TMD and jaw pain. This could include dietary changes to reduce inflammation, stress management techniques, and ergonomic changes to the patient’s work environment.
Overall, chiropractic care can be an effective treatment option for TMD and jaw pain. By addressing the underlying causes of the condition and working to reduce inflammation and improve mobility, chiropractors can help patients find relief from their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
