At Spine Care Chiropractic Center, we are proud to offer temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) treatments. TMJ is caused by inflammation in the temporomandibular joint, which acts as a sliding hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull.
What are the symptoms of TMJ?
TMJ causes discomfort along the jawbone making it painful to move your jaw. Jaw pain and discomfort don’t always equate to TMJ. However, if you are also experiencing headaches, trouble chewing, or pain in the face, jaw, and ear, you’re more than likely experiencing TMJ.
At-home treatments such as ice packs and pain relievers are the first step in remediating symptoms of TMJ. If your pain does not alleviate, we recommend seeking medical treatment from your chiropractor. We will identify the cause of your pain and recommend the best treatment plan to help you feel better as soon as possible.
