TMJ Treatment

Severe jaw painIs it difficult to open your mouth fully? Do you experience clicking or popping sounds when eating? Are you dealing with frequent headaches, migraines or an ache in your neck? If you answered yes to any of these, you may be experiencing TMJD or Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction.

What Is It?

TMJD is a collective term for a broad range of disorders that are accompanied by many symptoms. These include the following:

  • Radiating pain in the face, neck or shoulders
  • Limited movement or locking of the jaw
  • Painful clicking or grating when opening or closing the mouth
  • A significant change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together

Why Chiropractic?

The Journal of Oral Rehabilitation recommends an examination of the cervical spine in TMJD patients, even without a cervical complaint. At Oak Creek Relief & Wellness, we are trained to examine your neck and jaw to determine the best course of co-managed care with your oral health physician.

The position of the head and neck are intricately connected. With proper care and treatment of spinal disorders, TMJD patients can achieve pain relief and correction. Treatments at our practice enable the body to respond to dental changes so that care received from your oral health physician has greater and lasting results.

What About Medication?

While over-the-counter medication or prescription painkillers can provide the relief they don’t get to the root of the problem. They just mask the symptoms. That’s why we recommend giving our natural approach a try.

What to Expect

When you come in for TMJD care, you’ll receive the following:

  • Full examination to determine the best treatment plan
  • Pre- and post-X-rays
  • Multiple exams to evaluate your progress
  • Gentle and safe adjustments
  • Exercises to strengthen and stabilize the jaw and neck
  • Therapies to retrain muscles for proper movement of the jaw
  • Therapies that balance muscles for proper function
