Jaw Pain & TMJ

Jaw pain, also known as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, can be caused by a variety of factors, including jaw injury, arthritis, and teeth grinding (bruxism). In some cases, stress or anxiety may contribute to TMJ pain.

Chiropractic care may be helpful in relieving TMJ pain by addressing any underlying problems with the spine and jaw. Chiropractors use spinal manipulations to adjust misaligned joints, which can help to relieve muscle tension and improve overall function of the jaw. They may also suggest lifestyle changes, such as avoiding hard or chewy foods, to help prevent further irritation of the jaw joint.
