There are several ways in which a chiropractor can help jaw pain or TMJ. At Our Chiro Brisbane we commonly work with dentists, and patients who have TMJ issues or jaw pain, offering a range of treatment options.
Jaw pain can, in fact, be a symptom of TMJ dysfunction.
Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located on either side of your face in front of your ears. It’s the joint that connects your lower jaw (mandible) to your skull.
If you are experiencing any discomfort in the jaw area, make an appointment for a professional assessment. We have several treatment options at Our Chiro Brisbane that will provide effective pain relief.
Some of the common problems we see in the clinic are patients who clench or grind their teeth, or experience a clicking in the jaw/TMJ.
Grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep is a common response to stress. Stress is such a common condition in modern society. So it’s not surprising that we commonly see issues such as clenching or grinding teeth. Over time this will result in worn or cracked teeth, teeth that misalign, chewing challenges, headaches, neck pain and more.
