Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is a condition that affects the jaw and can cause pain, discomfort, and difficulty with chewing and speaking. If you are suffering from TMJ disorder, chiropractic care may be an effective treatment option for you. In this blog post, we will discuss how chiropractic can help with TMJ and why you should consider visiting our clinic, Absolute Health & Wellness, for your healthcare needs.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, with a particular emphasis on the spine. It involves hands-on techniques, such as spinal manipulation and mobilization, to help alleviate pain and improve function.
How Can Chiropractic Help with TMJ?
Chiropractic can be an effective treatment option for TMJ disorder for several reasons:
Addressing Muscle Tension: Chiropractic care can help address muscle tension in the jaw and surrounding areas, which can improve range of motion and reduce pain.
Improving Jaw Alignment: Chiropractic adjustments can help improve the alignment of the jaw, which can relieve pressure on the joint and reduce inflammation.
Identifying and Addressing Underlying Conditions: Chiropractors can identify and address underlying conditions that may be contributing to your TMJ disorder, such as neck or shoulder misalignments.
Non-Invasive Treatment Option: Chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment option that can help alleviate TMJ disorder without the need for surgery or medication.
