  • Painful clicking or popping in the jaw when opening or closing the mouth
  • Limited movement or locking of the jaw
  • Headaches, dizziness, difficulty swallowing
  • Neck, shoulder, facial or ear pain
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus), pressure in the ears, diminished hearing
  • Altered bite, altered jaw posture or altered jaw function during chewing, speech or other mouth movements
  • Clenching or grinding of teeth (bruxism)

TMJD is something that we treat on a regular basis. Chiropractic treatment of TMJD will address many of the above symptoms by gently correcting misalignments in the spine and jaw. In addition, treatments may include physiotherapeutic modalities, myofascial release and specific jaw exercises to help rehabilitate proper function of your jaw.

The Journal of Oral Rehabilitation recommends examination of the cervical spine in TMJD patients, even without cervical complaints. These findings are supported by the Journal of Clinical Oral Investigations as well. The position of the head and neck are intricately connected. At Naturally Chiropractic, we are trained to examine your neck and jaw to determine the best course of co-managed care with your oral health physician.
