Chiropractic TMJ Treatment in Ames

The temporomandibular (jaw) joint is one of the most densely innervated areas in the body. TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) impacts a large number of individuals and can come with a variety of symptoms. Common TMJ symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Aching pain in and around your ear
  • Jaw pain
  • Issues with jaw movement
  • Locked jaw
  • Jaw popping
  • Difficulty with chewing

When simple daily movements like chewing, talking, and drinking cause pain, a chiropractic doctor can help provide relief. Chiropractic care can help treat TMJ without the need for surgery or other medical intervention. Seeing a chiropractor can help not only relieve the symptoms of TMJ but also treat TMJ disorder itself.

Ames Chiropractic Treatments For TMJ

Neck Adjustments - Chiropractor in Ames

When treating TMJ, doctors will often prescribe pain relievers and/or muscle relaxants to treat symptoms while the patient waits for TMJ to go away on its own. A chiropractic doctor can help provide similar pain relief while also treating the root cause of TMJ. TMJ causes can range widely and can include:

  • An injury
  • Chronic teeth grinding and/or clenching
  • Arthritis
  • & More

Chiropractic TMJ treatment targets the joint, surrounding muscles, and the top two vertebrae of the neck to help loosen tight muscles and bring everything back into alignment. Using a specific analysis and an extremely gentle TMJ treatment method that includes localized massage, TMJ exercises, and an adjustment, our Ames chiropractors can help treat TMJ and provide lasting relief.
