Your temporomandibular joint is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are in front of each ear. It lets you move your jaw up and down and side to side, so you can talk, chew, and yawn. When one is having issues with this joint, it can be very painful. One may experience symptoms like: pain or tenderness in your face/jaw joint area/neck and shoulders/ in or around the ear when you chew/speak/open your mouth wide, jaws that get "stuck" or "lock" in the open- or closed-mouth position, and swelling on the side of your face (to name a few).
Our TMJ treatment program helps to eliminate acute pain and symptoms, while also producing long term results. Our TMJ protocol includes TMJ exercises, jaw manipulations, modalities, and pain relief therapy. We help with the root cause from habits that may be part of the cause, as well as the overall posture which commonly includes a very forward head playing a significant role in the root cause. We go further into what are the hips doing and why is the head so forward.
TMJ issues can make the simplest movements of actions like talking and eating painful, which can be very frustrating. Our team understands this and looks forward to discovering the root cause and giving you the right treatment to alleviate this pain.
