At Healthwise Chiropractic, we are proud to offer temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) treatments to provide relief for our patients. TMJ is caused by an inflammation in the temporomandibular joint, which acts as a hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull.
What are the symptoms of TMJ?
TMJ causes pain and discomfort along the jawbone and can make it painful to move your jaw. While jaw pain alone doesn’t equate to TMJ, experiencing headaches, trouble chewing, or pain in the face, jaw, and ear means you’re likely experiencing TMJ.
While at-home treatments such as ice packs and pain relievers are a good first step, we recommend seeking medical help from your chiropractor if your pain does not alleviate. We will identify the cause of your pain and recommend the best treatment plan to help you feel better as soon as possible.
