If you have pain or tenderness in your jaw or your jaw is making popping and clicking sounds, you may have TMJ (temporomandibular joint pain). The pain and tenderness of TMJ can range from mildly annoying to completely debilitating. While many wouldn’t think of chiropractic care for this condition, chiropractic TMJ adjustments can help ease discomfort. Because alignment of the spine can play a significant role in TMJ pain, a chiropractor can determine if the cause of pain is from the temporomandibular joint muscles or the spine holding it. The adjustments are quick and provide welcome relief. Your chiropractor will also teach you how to do specific soft tissue work at home to help loosen up the jaw muscles.
Through chiropractic support, you can keep TMJ pain under control. Spinal manipulative therapy, soft tissue massage, and exercise have been shown to reduce TMJ pain and symptoms through chiropractic oversight. Additionally, chiropractic solutions include intraoral myofascial release, which is a technique that releases the muscles surrounding the joint, accessing them from the inner side of persons cheek.

P.S. Chiropractic adjustments for TMJ are a natural, drugless alternative for pain alleviation.
