TMJ & Orofacial

TMJ Pain Eased by Chiropractic

TMJ - or temporomandibular joint disorder - is an umbrella term for the numerous symptoms that occur as a result of dysfunctional chewing and swallowing. However rather than only affecting the jaw, due to the number of systems within your body that need to work together during the process of eating, pain caused by TMJ is not localized. and can impact on everything from your breathing to the stability of your spine.

Symptoms

  • Migraines and headache syndromes
  • Jaw pain and problems with swallowing
  • Toothache and mouth pain
  • Breathing issues

Causes

The majority of research into TMJ and orofacial disorders point to stress and psychological tension being a primary factor.

Diagnosis

Diagnosing TMJ and orofacial issues is rarely problematic and the specialists at JC Rejuvenation and Wellness will normally be able to diagnose you in our clinic, without the need for specialist radiological equipment.

Treatment

Realigning your jaw is a primary concern in the treatment of TMJ and orofacial issues; however, other factors need to be taken into consideration, depending on the problem. Your JC Rejuvenation and Wellness specialist will discern whether other areas of your body, such as the shoulder blades, chest or pelvis are contributing factors and then work with you to manually restore structural balance to your body.
