The primary cause of TMD is a muscle fault, so-called “trigger points”. The jaw cannot move without muscles. The jaw muscles have two origins and attach to the jawbone on each side, which moves the jaw front-back and sideways. There are many different things that can cause TMD, including teeth grinding, poor posture, stress, injury, infection, arthritis, or other conditions.

When you visit a chiropractor, they will begin with an initial assessment to understand your medical history and goals. Your chiropractor will listen to your complaints and conduct an examination. They’ll discover the source of the problem and properly treat it. Treatment may involve spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy, and exercises. Chiropractors can often provide medication-free relief from physical pain.
You can exercise right after seeing a chiropractor but keep in mind that your body might be hypermobile. For example, if you are doing sprints after an adjustment on your hips, your joints will be hypermobile. After 24 hours, you should be good to return to vigorous exercise, but keep it to low-impact exercise in the first 24 hours.
On arrival, one of our expert staff members will help assess your health and history. We work together with you to determine the best treatment schedule.
Yes! Hip pain can be caused by misalignment of the spine, which puts pressure on the nerves around the pelvis. A chiropractor has many tools to address this type of pain using spinal adjustments that take pressure off the sources of chronic pain.
The chiropractic adjustment works by finding the joint that’s not working as it should, applying a high velocity, low amplitude force to the specific area to increase the joint space. Thus, forcing the joint to relax, improving mobility in the area, and stimulating blood flow to the affected area to promote healing.
Yes, chiropractic treatments can help with spinal stenosis. A chiropractor won’t be able to cure the condition, but they may be able to relieve some of the pressure on your nerves. Spinal stenosis is a condition that occurs when the spinal canal begins to narrow, which puts pressure on the nerves running through the spine. For example, if two of your vertebra are pressing on one nerve, you may experience pain or numbness in your arms or legs. Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce this type of pain by freeing up space for the nerves and allowing better blood flow, promoting healing within your body. A good chiropractor will also provide you with exercises that can help manage the symptoms of spinal stenosis.
Any age can benefit from chiropractic care. Babies, toddlers, and newborns can receive treatment for conditions. Babies can experience torticollis or a spasm in the sternocleidomastoid muscle that mothers notice during breastfeeding when a child can’t turn their neck. Children, adults, and seniors can benefit from chiropractic care.
Chiropractors treat a wide range of injuries and complications, such as scoliosis, low back pain, sprains, strains, myofascial trigger points, joint instability, joint pains, headaches, cluster headaches, cervicogenic headaches, tension headaches, migraines, vertigo, muscle spasms, etc. and in some cases, they can help reduce the symptoms of MS.
While chiropractic neck adjustments can be an effective treatment for certain conditions, they also carry a small risk of complications, such as stroke, nerve damage, or disc herniation. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional before undergoing any type of spinal manipulation, especially if you have a preexisting condition or are taking any medications. Chiropractors are trained professionals who take precautions to minimize the risk of injury, but it is always important to weigh the potential risks and benefits before undergoing any treatment.
