If you struggle with TMJ pain, Max Physiotherapy offers various treatment options that effectively help ease the pain from this common ailment.
What is TMJ Pain?
TMJ (jaw pain) is caused by Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome; a painful condition that affects the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles of the face, neck, and head. Pain is most noticeable with the movement of the jaw, especially when eating. In some cases, the jaw joint may click as the jaw opens and/or shuts.
Why is My Jaw So Sore?
The most common causes of jaw pain are clenching of the jaw and teeth grinding (bruxism). The misalignment of the teeth and/or jaw is also a major contributing factor to jaw pain.
Effective Treatment for TMJ Jaw Pain
At Max Physiotherapy, we use a combination of treatments for TMJ jaw pain. Active Release along with Massage Techniques treats the muscles and soft tissues of the neck, jaw, and head. TMJ massage includes treatment inside the mouth, which is extremely beneficial as it releases soft tissue restrictions.
How can A Chiropractor Alleviate Symptoms of TMJ?
A Chiropractor may help with TMJ by alleviating tension and dysfunction in the spine. As Chiropractors alleviate this dysfunction, it reduces the pressure on various nerves, which then alleviates pain associated with TMJ. Many people who have TMJ need continual care in order to keep the pain under control and manage other side effects.
