When the joint that connects your jaw to your skull becomes injured or damaged, it can lead to a wide range of painful symptoms. Teeth or jaw injuries, jaw misalignment, teeth grinding, poor posture, and gum chewing can lead to TMJ, which generally requires treatment from a professional. TMJ can cause continuous jaw pain and facial pain, painful clicking when opening and closing the jaw, and radiating pain in the neck which is often exacerbated by cervical spine disorders. You may also experience headaches, earaches, dizziness, hearing problems, and difficulty swallowing. Why continue to suffer from these chronic symptoms when a chiropractor can assist you in decreasing your discomfort? You’ll receive a customized treatment plan that will guide you towards recovery and that can be changed as you progress.
