What is Jaw and TMJ Pain
The Jaw known in anatomical terms as the Temporomanidibular Joint or TMJ for short is a delicate hinge joint that connects your jaw with the temporal bones of the skull. Its ranges of motion allow you to move the jaw up and down and side to side so you can chew, yawn and talk.
What Causes Jaw or TMJ Pain?
- Injuries to the Jaw or surrounding structure
- Grinding or clenching your teeth
- Stress can cause you to tighten facial muscles and clench your teeth
- hard breads and sweets
- Arthritis in the joint to name a few
Symptoms May Include:
- Pain and tenderness in the jaw area or even face when you chew, speak or open your mouth wide.
- Jaw gets “stuck” or “locked”
- Clicking, popping, or grating sounds coming from the jaw
- You may also experience Toothaches, headaches, neck aches, dizziness and ringing in the ears
How Does Chiropractic Help with Jaw Pain?
We Look to find the cause of the Jaw Pain and help you and your body to stop recreating things that may be causing them.
Chiropractic looks at the overall structure of the whole body and aims to create long lasting corrections in the spine and the Jaw (TMJ)through adjustments and corrective traction and rehab exercises.
Think of your spine like the foundation for your house…
If the foundation is shifted, imbalanced or damaged some area of the house will show secondary issues – some walls would crack, some doors would break down, and some windows would begin to break down.
How do you manage this?
One option is to patch up the wall, rehang the doors, replace the windows and attempt to fix the secondary problems to mask the primary problem.
Option 2 (what most people do)
is addressing the primary problem itself and the root cause.
When you don’t address the underlying structural problem, the secondary problems need to be repaired over and over and over.
Why Choose Life Chiropractic Studio?
A LCS Chiropractor looks To Find The Cause To give Longer Lasting Results.
By Assessing the structure (Spine) and nerve system (the wires that run inside your spinal column). The nerve system controls the Health of your body.
When imbalances and shifting occurs it can put pressure on the nervous system and affect body in ways we know about (these produce symptoms and sometimes pain), but also in ways we have no idea about.
This can be caused by physical, chemical or emotional stressors.
This can set the stage for dis-ease and ILL health with your spine, muscles and internal organs. Most spinal shifts are minor and painless and people are unaware of them, or they can be major and hurt very much.
They can affect your mobility and the capacity of your muscles and organs to function optimally.
Once the spine and nerve system is optimised, we then teach you specific things to do between visits to keep it that way.
If you’re tired of constantly patching up the problems and are looking for a long term solution that you can both feel and see with objective structural analysis, then Life Chiropractic Is for YOU..
