TMJ Pain

  • The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. When this joint is injured or damaged, it can lead to a localized pain disorder called temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome.
  • Causes of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome include injury to the teeth or jaw, misalignment of the teeth or jaw, teeth grinding, poor posture, stress, arthritis, and gum chewing.
  • Signs and symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome include

o    pain in the jaw joint,

o    jaw clicking and popping,

o    ear pain,

o    popping sounds in ears,

o    headaches,

o    stiff or sore jaw muscles,

o    pain in the temple area, or

o    locking of the jaw joint.

  • Chiropractic can help TMJ pain by gently releasing imbalances in the muscles that hold the jaw in position (posterior digastric, internal and external pterygoid).
  • Manual or instrument adjustments can then help realign the jaw. These adjustments can help restore alignment, improve mobility, and relieve pain and stiffness.
  • Other types of treatment that may also be recommended for relief of TMJ pain may include:

o    ice packs

o    massage

o    stretching and strengthening exercises.
