What Causes TMJ Pain?
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, it is basically the hinge that connects your jaw and skull. When something goes awry in the area it can cause radiating pain in the joint and the surrounding muscles. Typical triggers for TMJ pain are stress, too much chewing, teeth grinding, and accidents. The pain often comes in flare-ups. Sometimes the pain from TMJ becomes seemingly unbearable for a person.
How Does a Chiropractor Provide Effective TMJ Treatment?
A chiropractor will treat your TMJ with a multifaceted approach. Because TMJ flare-ups do not just affect the localized jaw area, but can radiate through the ears, neck, and even mimic severe migraine pain, your treatment will likely include techniques to remedy pain in all of these areas, with a focus on the source of the pain.
Methods of Treatment for TMJ:
- Cervical Manipulation — Gentle expert manipulation of the top spinal vertebra has proven effective for the treatment of pain conditions ranging from the head to the shoulders, and even down to the lower back.
- Active Release on the TMJ Joint and Surrounding Muscles — Myofascial release is a way to relax the muscles surrounding the jaw, realign the joint, and begin physical therapy on the temporomandibular Joint to reduce future flare-ups.
- Cold Laser Therapy — Cold laser therapy facilitates deep healing in the area it is applied, it does not hurt patients in the least, and is a proven method for many painful conditions across the body.
- Localized Cryotherapy — This method of safely applying extremely cold air to injured areas of the body is an effective treatment for TMJ because it instantly decreases inflammation which often brings immediate pain relief to the area.
