Your jaw is held in place by muscles and ligaments as it attaches to your skull just above the ear. This joint is known as the TemporoMandibular Joint (TMJ). Misalignment of the TMJ can seriously affect the blood flow, muscle tension, spinal imbalance and proper nervous function in the upper body. This can result in many complex symptoms and ultimately disease if left untreated. Our doctors are highly trained in the of non-surgical/ drug free correction of TMJ misalignments and related spinal subluxations.
There are also many different causes for TMJ dysfunction. Some cases can be corrected simply by changing sleeping positions, while others may require surgical intervention. If you are suffering from any pain or discomfort while chewing or if you hear a clicking noise upon opening and closing your mouth, contact our office for an immediate consultation.
