TMJ / Jaw Pain

Did you know that jaw pain can stem from various causes, not dental-related? As it turns out, a painful jaw can also stem from an inflamed or irritated temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Studies also reveal that slightest neck and spinal alignment changes can also affect the temporomandibular joint. Up to 70 percent of reported cases of TMJ disorder come hand in hand with neck pain as an accompanying symptom. This is why it’s not surprising that many patients diagnosed with TMJ come to an Upper Cervical chiropractor for TMJ pain relief. 

Upper Cervical Chiropractic doctors help patients relieve TMJ symptoms by correcting the C1 and C2 alignment with the head. The topmost bones can shift from the body’s central axis due to several factors, including blunt force on the neck, concussion, whiplash, awkward head tilting while working, and postural problems (kyphosis, lordosis, tech neck, etc.). 

But, with Upper Cervical Care from a chiropractor for TMJ, patients can retrain the spine to address posture issues and remove undue pressure on the spine and nearby structures such as the TMJ. Upper Cervical Chiropractic care is widely renowned across the country for its holistic approach to revitalizing the body and combating chronic health concerns like TMJ dysfunction. It works for a broad spectrum of individuals, including young patients, working professionals, and seniors.
