TMJ Chiropractic Treatment

Are you looking for a non-drug, non-surgical solution with no side effects that is proven to significantly reduce pain, popping and clicking in the jaw?

Imagine being able to chew again without the annoying popping sounds, jaw pain or headaches.

Or maybe finally get rid of that mouth guard needed every night?

According to Dental Research, the most common cause of facial pain is TMJD (temporomandibular joint and muscle disorder), or more commonly referred to as “TMJ.”

TMJD is a broad term for a range of disorders displaying some of the signs below:

  • Jaw pain
  • Teeth grinding
  • Jaw popping, clicking, or locking
  • Limited or altered jaw range of motion
  • Radiating pain in the head, face, neck, or shoulders
  • Symptoms also include headaches, earaches, dizziness, and difficulty swallowing

Most traditional TMJD treatments just try to mask the symptoms but never fix the underlying problem causing the pain.  Unfortunately many of those people suffer for a long time with chronic jaw pain and symptoms.

TMJD can have many different causes such as trauma, stress, teeth grinding but the damage typically is always in the muscles, ligaments and cartilage of the jaw and joint. This damage if not rehabbed properly can lead to chronic pain and arthritis.  Our treatment plan is different than most other TMJD centers because we focus on rehabbing as much damage as possible instead of using drugs or a mouth guard to treat the symptoms only.

Finally a Treatment That Gets Long Term Results!

Many TMJD sufferers are either given a bite or mouth guard, injection or pain medication to try to cover up the symptoms. None of those approaches fix the problem in the muscles and joint that causes the problems and lead to short term results only.

Our office specializes in a unique multi-treatment approach focused on stimulating tissue healing in the underlying damaged tissue to get long lasting results.

Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy is a pain-free, non-surgical procedure, used to rapidly stimulate the healing process in soft tissues.  Research has proven that laser is a cutting edge technology to stimulate tissue healing.  It offers non-invasive treatment to promote rapid healing for those who suffer from pain in muscles, nerves and joints by increasing blood flow, decreasing inflammation, improving tissue healing, and decreasing pain.  It is a comfortable 10 minute procedure.

Specialized Therapeutic Exercises decrease painful muscle spasms in the jaw muscles, help improve movement of the jaw leading to decrease in stress and pain.

We have developed, tested, and refined our treatment protocols.  Our patients who follow our treatment guidelines achieve significant relief from their jaw symptoms as seen in the video above and can maintain those results from home without having to take ongoing pain medication or wear a mouth guard to bed every night.

When you come in for your TMJD evaluation you will receive the following:

  1. An in-depth consultation to listen to the details of your case.
  2. A comfortable neuromuscular jaw examination.
  3. A thorough analysis and review of the exam findings.
  4. If the Doctor determines he can accept your case, he will explain what treatments you will need based on your specific case.
  5. With all that information, we pass it onto you and you get to decide.
