TMJ Diagnosis and Treatment From Your Beaverton Chiropractor

At Unity Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we provide you with comprehensive care for many ailments. Your chiropractor in Beaverton OR can help you with TMJ as well. TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is not uncommon, but it does require ongoing care from a trained professional to reduce symptoms and worsening conditions.

TMJ

What Is TMJ?

TMJ occurs when there is some level of dysfunction in the joint that moves your jaw. This is a hinged joint that should move without limitation and without pain. When it does not align, it may lead to pain and inflammation.

What Causes TMJ?

Several things can cause TMJ to occur. A breakdown of the disc that is present in this area and works to protect the jaw joint can occur, for example. It is also possible that there is some type of impact to the jaw that has caused a misalignment of the joint, creating uneven movement. In some situations, the cartilage present here is damaged, causing the paint.

What Are the Symptoms of TMJ?

Typical symptoms of TMJ include:

  • Pain in the jaw
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Pain when opening or closing the mouth
  • A jaw that is tender to the joint
  • Cracking or a popping sound in this area.

How Can Beaverton Chiropractic Care Help with TMJ?

How can Beaverton chiropractic care help with this concern? Often, proper alignment of the joint can help to reduce the pain and discomfort there. Using a gentle but forceful movement, it is possible to properly align the jaw again. This works to automatically stop the pain caused by the grinding and sticking of the jaw. This also works to stimulate natural healing of the tissues in this area. Over a few appointments, it is possible to see fewer symptoms and significantly less pain through chiropractic care for TMJ.
