The jaw bone is connected to your skull by the temporomandibular joints located on each side of your head just in front of your ears.

Posture refers to the way you hold your body while standing, sitting, or lying down. It is crucial to maintain good posture to keep your joints stacked vertically over one another.

Depending on the practitioner, chiropractic appointments last anywhere from eight minutes to an hour. For Dr. Joshua Konu at Human Integrated Performance he likes to have a minimum of 15 minutes. That gives enough time to do a reassessment and also to provide thorough treatment. For individuals with more than one problem, a 30-minute appointment or an extended appointment will allow enough time to treat multiple areas.
