TMJD Specialty Treatment

What is TMJD?

TMJD, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a condition that affects the joint that connects the jawbone to the skull. TMJD can cause a range of symptoms, including pain and discomfort in the jaw, face, neck, and shoulders. The disorder can also cause headaches, ear pain, and difficulty opening and closing the mouth.

TMJD can affect pain in several ways. For example:

  1. Muscle tension: TMJD can cause muscle tension in the jaw, neck, and shoulders, which ,can lead to pain and discomfort in these areas. This muscle tension can also cause headaches and migraines.

  2. Inflammation: In some cases, TMJD can cause inflammation in the temporomandibular joint, which can lead to pain and discomfort in the jaw and face.

  3. Nerve compression: TMJD can also cause nerve compression in the jaw, which can lead to pain and discomfort in the face, head, and neck.

  4. Tooth grinding: People with TMJD may also grind their teeth, which can cause pain and damage to the teeth and jaw.

A TMJD treatment is included in a New Patient - Chiropractic visit.

Your first visit will include a full exam, including jaw movement measurements and a full spine and jaw adjustment, as well as myofascial release of the jaw muscles.

A full body massage and/or laser therapy can be added on as co-treatments as needed, depending on availability.
