TMJ disorder affects the temporomandibular joint, which connects the jawbone to the head, just in front of the ear. About 12 % of the population experiences this at some point in their life. TMJ is caused by trauma, dental procedures, misalignments of the jaw, grinding teeth, or arthritis.
Before adjusting the jaw, it is important for your chiropractor to determine what caused TMJ in the first place and make lifestyle recommendations and exercises to help build stamina and prevent this from happening in the future.
Chiropractic adjustments are gentle, safe, and specific that can restore optimal movement and function of muscles and nerves. Many people notice a difference after just one adjustment.
