The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) or jaw can frequently move out of the correct position and cause tremendous jaw pain, headaches, and neck pain. When this occurs, it is often called TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).
- Frequently it is aggravated by tension in the muscles controlling the jaw; massage can help to relax these areas.
- But as chiropractors, we have also found that subluxation of the first two vertebrae in the neck as well as cranial distortions can also contribute to TMD. These are often overlooked and ill-understood.
- In babies, problems with the jaw can actually start in-utero.
We offer delicate chiropractic and acupuncture techniques to help with almost 90% of all TMJ problems.
