The Doctors at Specific Chiropractic may be able to help those suffering from Temporomandibular disorders or TMD (more commonly known as TMJ)
Your temporomandibular joint is essentially a hinge that connects your jaw bone to the temporal bones of your skull, located in front of each ear. It allows you to move your jaw up and down and side to side, so you can talk, chew, and yawn. Problems with your jaw and the muscles in your face that control your jaw are known as temporomandibular disorders (TMD). But you may hear it wrongly called TMJ, after the joint. Dentists believe symptoms arise from problems with the muscles of your jaw or with the parts of the joint itself.
The Doctors at Specific Chiropractic in Boca Raton, Florida may offer a solution to TMJ Disorders and Jaw Pain. There is research correlating the relationship between muscle tightness in the jaw, upper neck, and shoulders with Jaw Pain and TMJ Disorders. We have great success with our non surgical treatment for jaw pain.
Symptoms of TMD/TMJ may include:
Pain or tenderness in the jaw, especially when chewing or yawning.
Clicking of the jaw when opening your mouth.
Facial pains, aches, and soreness.
Locking of the temporomandibular joint, resulting in severe pain and inability to open or close your mouth.
Pain in or around the ear.
