Jaw pain can be due to a variety of conditions. Dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJD) can lead to severe jaw pain. Joint dysfunction can be due to various reasons, including muscle tension, disk degeneration, clinching, and grinding. To determine what is causing your jaw pain, we recommend a thorough examination by one of our doctors. We will often work alongside your dental professional to maximize your results.
Manual therapy helps to relieve trigger points by using various treatment techniques to induce muscle relaxation and pain relief. Manual therapy is also an excellent treatment option for jaw pain, especially when trigger points are present. Careful consideration is taken when working on the fascial musculature. Our doctors are trained to palpate and examine the muscles that may be leading to temporomandibular joint dysfunction.
Dry needling is often a painless and effective procedure for jaw pain. This treatment technique uses very fine filiform needles to penetrate the skin, resulting in muscle relaxation, increased microcirculation, and nervous system regulation. Check your chiropractor's licensing and certifications to ensure the highest quality outcomes.
We often provide tips for posture correction when necessary. Strengthening of the proper muscles is also essential to stabilize the head and neck musculature to prevent trigger points, pain, and dysfunction from occurring in the future.
