Do you have jaw pain? TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is the hinge that connects your jaw bone to your skull. TMJ disorders (TMD) can be caused by overuse of jaw muscles, misalignment of teeth, teeth grinding or clenching, as well as poor posture, and stress. Chiropractic treatment for TMJ/TMD is a non-invasive way to realign your jaw and relieve jaw pain. Headaches, earaches, and migraines can all be associated with TMJ/TMD.

Do you grind your teeth? Grinding may increase pressure on the joints in the temporomandibular area causing pain. You may notice this after a stressful day at work. It’s important to take care of this so you don’t suffer from further damage.
Headaches are also associated with TMJ/TMD. A headache often occurs due to misalignment of the jaw, or poor posture which may cause muscles in your face and neck to be strained or overworked. Neck strain can lead to pain in the upper back, shoulders, arms, hands, etc., as well as headaches! Many people have gotten much relief by seeing our chiropractors about their temporomandibular issues.
Stress is one of the leading causes of temporomandibular disorders. The tendency to clench or grind your teeth increases when you are under stress. If you clench or grind your teeth at night, it is a good idea to wear a mouthguard when sleeping.
In addition to all of this, poor posture can cause the muscles in the face and neck to be overworked which leads to headache pain. We offer non-invasive chiropractic treatment for TMJ/TMD which helps realign the jaw and relieve muscle stress. Talk to a professional to get help!
