TMJ (TMD) Therapy
Do you suffer from chronic headaches or neck pain? Do your jaw joints click or pop and create tension behind your ears or eyes? Your teeth could be a huge factor in your discomfort. You may be suffering Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) pain, otherwise known as Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD). This is a common condition that many people deal with daily.
Some TMD/TMJ symptoms include:
- Pain or difficulty opening your mouth
- Head, face, neck and shoulder discomfort
- Ear pain or hearing difficulties
- The ringing of the ears
- Teeth grinding and clenching
- Constant fatigue
- Popping or grating sounds in the joints
- Persistent headaches
Due to the wide variety of symptoms, finding the right treatment can be complicated and can involve several health care professionals including physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, etc.
With a proper diagnosis, we may be able to determine the root cause of your problems and then work with you to develop a customized treatment plan for your specific needs.
