Temporomandibular (TMJ) pain
Temporomandibular disorders, also called TMJ, affect the joint where your skull meets your lower jaw. Common symptoms include jaw clicking, pain, stiffness or a locked jaw. These symptoms are a result of the joint being misaligned and/or muscle adhesions in the jaw muscles which can occur from grinding or clenching your teeth, poor posture or an injury.
What to expect on your visit: Dr. Drobbin has completed post graduate work in TMJ and you can expect a complete assessment of your condition and possible co-management of treatment with your dentist. A total approach to wellness helps determine the best course of action for your problem. Chiropractic adjustments may be used in your treatment of TMJ depending on the cause of your jaw disorder. During an adjustment, the chiropractor may press on your jaw, skull, muscles or upper spine to relieve irritated nerves and increase your jaw’s range of motion.
