Chiropractic care for TMJ pain

TMJ pain, also known as TMD or Temporomandibular Disorder, can interfere with your quality of life, but you can smile again with chiropractic care. While there aren't really TMJ specialists, targeted chiropractic adjustments can help provide relief.

Can a chiropractor help with TMJ pain?

You may not realize just how much you move your jaw around all day long until you experience TMJ pain. Talking, chewing, sleeping, and even kissing(!) can become unbearable activities. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a hinge-like joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull. You have two of these joints, one on each side of your head in front of your ears. The TMJ allows you to open and close your mouth, and move your jaw from side to side. Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) is a condition that involves dysfunction of the TMJ and the muscles around it. It can lead to pain, stiffness, clicking, or locking of the jaw, and targeted chiropractic adjustments at a TMJ clinic can help.

  • Jaw or head injury or trauma

  • Teeth grinding or clenching, which can put pressure on the jaw and damage the cartilage.

  • Arthritis, which can cause inflammation and degeneration of the joint.

  • Malocclusion, which means the teeth do not fit together properly and can affect the alignment of the jaw.

  • Stress, which can cause muscle tension and spasms in the jaw.
