TMJ Jaw Pain

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or simply TMJ, is a tightening, popping, or clicking of the jaw that is commonly associated with chewing or stress. TMJ can occur at any time, and in some cases, it can seem as if there is no plausible reason for the temporary tightening of the jaw muscles; however, there may be some underlying causes of TMJ that are all treatable with the assistance of Total HealthCare Medical Center. Our medical professionals have assisted many individuals with obtaining pain relief from the complications of TMJ, and we may be able to help you, too.

In addition to the clicking, popping, and tightness of the mandible that can occur during an episode of TMJ, other symptoms can include:

  • Dizziness
  • Neck stiffness or pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Headaches
  • Earaches

For most people, TMJ is associated with complications arising from laxity of the ligaments, and thus, the body tends to place calcium around the bones surrounding the lax ligament in order to strengthen a weakness. This extra calcification will often lead to further problems, such as arthritis, stiffness, and degeneration of the tissues of the neck and jaw.

How to Treat TMJ

We provide a variety of different treatments to our patients that have been shown to effectively treat the symptoms of TMJ. We provide comprehensive plans to eliminate pain, including biotherapeutic injections into the damaged area to help strength the spine and jaw. These injections are often coupled with chiropractic care that can help realign the spine and prevent further stress on the muscles and ligaments that attach to the jaw.
