TMJ

If you live with a tense jaw, the pain will eventually take its toll on you. TMJD, or temporomandibular joint disorder, can make it difficult to speak and eat. Unfortunately, this joint is such a problem for so many people because of the way it moves and the way the body holds the tension in the face. West Hartford Chiropractic LLC understands the difficulties of living with TMJ disorder. That's why we work with a variety of patients to offer treatment options to heal inflammation and pain.

What Causes TMJ Problems?

One of the biggest reasons why people face TMJ pain is because of a physical injury, like a dislocated or damaged jaw. You may also suffer from TMJ if you have a misalignment in your neck or back that causes your jaw to sit slightly uneven. Of course, chronic stress is also a major contributor to TMJ disorder.

What Are the Signs of TMJ Disorder?

Several symptoms are indicative of potential TMJ disorder, including:

  • Joint pain
  • Joint stiffness
  • Joint clicking or popping
  • Difficulty opening your mouth
  • Earaches
  • Inflammation and swelling
  • Headaches or migraines

Other symptoms can also be indicative of TMJ disorder, and some of these symptoms can indicate a different disorder altogether. Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine whether or not you are suffering from TMJ disorder and provide the corresponding treatment.

How Do Chiropractors Treat TMJ Disorder?

TMJ disorders can be treated with a variety of chiropractic therapies and techniques. Fortunately, many chiropractic options are completely natural and non-invasive. These are just a few of the treatment options a chiropractor might try:

  • Chiropractic adjustments to align your spine and neck
  • Cold laser therapy to reduce inflammation and improve healing speed
  • Acupuncture for pain relief
  • Stretching to improve range of motion and relieve tension
  • Massage to relieve tension

Our chiropractor will create a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. Each patient is different, and we understand that you may have different reasons for seeking specific chiropractic treatments.

The good news is that each treatment option is non-invasive, meaning you never have to undergo surgery to reap its benefits. Additionally, these treatment options do not require you to take medication.
