TMD Treatment with Your Beaverton Chiropractor
Do you regularly wake up with a headache or neck tension? Does your jaw ache? Has your dentist warned you that you are grinding your teeth? Jaw clenching and night grinding can create serious problems with your jaw, including TMD temporomandibular disorder (TMJ). If you are looking for pain relief from this common problem, our Beaverton chiropractic team at Unity Chiropractic and Wellness Center offers cranial work and intra-oral work that can help.
What Is TMD?
TMD temporomandibular disorder, which is also sometimes called TMJ, is a common jaw problem that occurs when the hinge joint of the jaw, the temporomandibular joint, is compromised. People with TMD will notice their jaw pops or hurts when they open their mouth. This condition often stems from jaw clenching or night grinding. If left untreated, this pain becomes very severe and can spread to the neck, shoulders, and ear.
How Can a Tigard Chiropractor Help?
If you have TMD, our Tigard and Beaverton chiropractic team can help. The first step to help stop the pain and discomfort of TMD is to ensure proper cranial alignment. We offer cranial work in addition to traditional chiropractic care to help release the pressure that can lead to nighttime jaw clenching and teeth grinding.
Sometimes, poor alignment of the jaw is the trigger for TMD. Our chiropractic team is specially trained in intra-oral work to realign the jaw. This brings fast pain relief and can also help reduce instances of jaw clenching and night grinding. After treating the underlying cause of your pain, our team will focus on stress reduction, behavioral modification, and functional treatments to help reduce these problems even further.
