TMJ DISORDER: A PAIN IN THE NECK

Are you suffering from pain in the jaw, neck tension, aching shoulder muscles or frequent headaches and migraines?

Do you blame past injuries, stress, too much sitting in front of the computer or poor quality sleep?

It is easy to dismiss these symptoms as just part of modern day living. But could there be a treatable cause? Most people do not even realise that there are specific chiropractic treatment options available.

WHAT IS TMJ DISORDER?

TMJ stands for the temporo-mandibular joint – your jaw joint. The temporomandibular joints are located in front of each ear and connect the lower jaw to the skull. When the TMJ and its associated muscles malfunction, jaw pain results which can easily spread or radiate to surrounding areas such as your neck and shoulders.

Take our free TMJ Disorder Questionnaire to see how your TMJ affects you.

SOLUTION: CHIROPRACTIC

At the TMJ and Sleep Centre we have developed a comprehensive approach to finding a more permanent solution to your TMJ pain and getting your life back to normal. In certain complex cases we may also work with specially trained TMJ dentists.

Painkillers may be an obvious way to relieve the pain associated with a TMJ disorder but this approach is temporary. A more lasting solution is to focus treatment on the cause of the TMJ pain and dysfunction that is occurring.

Our TMJ treatment has a special focus on helping:

  • Relieve jaw & facial pain and headaches & migraines
  • Resolve chronic neck and shoulder pain
  • Support cranial & postural changes during orthodontics
  • Athletes unlock an athletic advantage
  • People who have had head injury, concussion & whiplash
  • Improve balance and dizziness

By bringing balance back to the nervous system and muscles around the jaw, head and neck your TMJ pain and symptoms can become a thing of the past.

It can:

  • Strain relationships
  • Impact academic, work and sports performance
  • Increase road accidents and injuries in general
  • Reduce energy levels and immune system function
  • Reduce concentration & problem solving ability
  • Affect learning and behaviour (ADHD)
  • Affect mood (anxiety & depression)
  • Harm your heart, metabolism, weight and sex drive.
