TMJ Pain Relief with Chiropractic

TMJ Pain Relief with Chiropractic

Burton TMJ pain recoverySince trauma to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is often rather painful, we do our best to help our Burton patients find relief as quickly and effectively as possible. In fact, Dr. Elganainy will tell you that the research shows just how much chiropractic can help ease soreness in the jaw.

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With TMJ Pain and Discomfort

For instance, one study published in Physiotherapy Theory and Practice included 15 participants with jaw pain who were treated with neck adjustments, middle-back adjustments, and trigger point therapy via dry needling. Patients were assessed prior to these treatments and at 15 days and two months post-treatment. The authors reported positive outcomes such as reduced pain, greater jaw mobility, and lower impairment at both follow-ups.

Another research paper carried out an analysis of almost 800 studies involving manual and manipulative therapy for conditions such as TMJ and discovered similar findings. The authors concluded that there is a "fair...level of evidence" that chiropractic care can help ease pain associated with TMJ and other upper extremity disorders.

This is great news since the origins of TMJ are largely unknown. While injury to the jaw area can cause pain symptoms, there are other sources to consider as well, such as grinding teeth, osteoarthritis, and clenching of the jaw due to tension.
