Sunshine Coast Chiropractor TMJ treatment
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) disorder is a common condition that affects the jaw joint and its surrounding muscles. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include pain and discomfort in the jaw, neck, and face, difficulty chewing, and clicking or popping sounds when opening and closing the mouth.
At Little Mountain Chiropractic, our treatment involves a holistic approach to healthcare that seeks to address the underlying cause of a condition, rather than simply treating its symptoms. In the case of TMJ disorder, chiropractors will often use a combination of manual therapy techniques, such as joint mobilisation, stretching and manipulation, to improve the function of the jaw joint (TMJ) and surrounding muscles. This can help to reduce pain, increase range of motion, and improve overall jaw function.
In addition to manual therapy, chiropractors may also prescribe exercises and stretches to improve the strength and flexibility of the jaw muscles. These exercises can help to reduce tension in the muscles, improve posture, and promote healthy jaw movement. Chiropractors will often also recommend lifestyle modifications, such as avoiding foods that are difficult to chew, or limiting the use of jaw-clenching activities like chewing gum or biting nails.
Another technique used by the chiropractors at Little Mountain Chiropractic for treating TMJ disorder is cranial-sacral therapy or Sacro Occipital Technique SOT. This gentle, hands-on approach to manual therapy focuses on the cranium and sacrum, and aims to help improve the function of the jaw joint by reducing tension in the surrounding muscles and tissues.
By addressing the underlying cause of the condition, chiropractors may help to reduce pain and improve jaw function, leading to a better quality of life for those affected by this condition. If you are experiencing symptoms of TMJ disorder, consider seeking the care of a chiropractor to learn more about the options available to you.
