This week I treated several patients suffering from TMJ Syndrome.
TMJ Syndrome is pain and dysfunction of the Temporo-Mandibular Joint, which are the two small joints that connect your jaw to the skull. TMJ problems can be caused by stress, clenching of the teeth and trauma such as Auto Accidents.
Symptoms can include pain, headaches, clicking, popping and locking of the jaw. and may also be associated with neck and cervical spine problems.
Chiropractic treatment is safe and effective in relieving tension, pain and dysfunction of TMJ Syndrome. Treatment includes gentle manipulation of the TMJ joints and the upper cervical vertebrae as well as spinal and Jaw exercises.
So remember, the 5 most dangerous words are “Maybe It Will Go Away.”
