Do you suffer from Jaw Pain?
Many people suffer from pain in or around the jaw.
But not all jaw problems cause pain only. Other symptoms of jaw issues are:
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Light sensitivity
- Sound sensitivity
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
Causes of Jaw problems are varied.
As a chiropractor, I will perform an examination in order to arrive at a diagnosis. It is important to find the root cause of the pain and determine if my services are sufficient. You may need a dental appointment for certain types of treatment, like teeth fillings or mouthguards for night clenching. Some conditions require a combined approach involving adjustments, soft tissue work, nutritional advice, and lifestyle changes.
Treatment of Jaw Pain
The main focus of chiropractic care is to address the underlying function of the jaw and surrounding muscles. This in turn may lead to a reduction in pain. This is done using a variety of techniques including manual adjustments to the neck, spine and maybe shoulder (where indicated), activator adjustments to the jaw or mandible, soft tissue techniques to muscles, exercises and relaxation techniques to reduce muscle spasms. By improving the biomechanics of the jaw and giving lifestyle advice you can reduce your pain and hopefully the chance of it returning.
