TMJ Dysfunction

Make an appointment

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can be the source of jaw pain, clicking, limited mouth opening, and referred facial symptoms. TMJ Dysfunction refers to a group of disorders affecting the TMJ, masticatory muscles and the associated structures. Patients who have had mandibular osteotomy surgery, jaw trauma, wisdom teeth removal, complex dental work, bruxism and lock jaw are prone to TMJ dysfunction. A thorough examination and assessment will help your Chiropractor understand whether gentle TMJ articulations and treatment will help your case. There may be help available for what can be chronic jaw symptoms.

Other Conditions
Lower back pain
Low back pain can range from being a minor intermittent issue to one of debilitating significance. Patients often describe pain as being a dull ache in the lower back, but as symptoms become more severe pain can be unrelenting and radiate or refer. This is usually the result of increasing inflammation levels at the site of injury in the case of mechanical low back pain. Acute muscle spasms may also be associated as the body tries to splint the damage.
Neck pain
Neck pain can be a dull ache, or the feeling of spasms and sharp pains around the neck muscles (especially when moving the neck). It can also cause discomfort while laying down, pins and needles or numbness down one/both arms.
Bulging Disc
Patients often present with a bulging disc that can be seen on CT or MRI scans. Disc lesions are a major cause of back pain, and can be the manifestation of long term problems. A specific approach to assessment and treatment can give great results. The spinal surgeons we co-refer with endorse our conservative approach before a patient considers surgery.
