Chiropractic care is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, including temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques, including spinal manipulation and adjustments, to help alleviate pain and improve function in the body.
One of the main ways that chiropractic care can help treat TMD and TMJ disorders is by addressing any misalignments or imbalances in the jaw, neck, and spine. These imbalances can put added strain on the jaw joint and surrounding muscles, leading to pain and discomfort. By correcting these imbalances, chiropractors can help relieve pressure on the jaw and reduce TMD and TMJ symptoms.
Another way that chiropractic care can help treat TMD and TMJ disorders is by reducing muscle tension and improving range of motion in the jaw. Chiropractors may use techniques such as massage, stretches, and exercises to relax and stretch the muscles around the jaw, helping to alleviate pain and improve function.
It’s important to note that TMD and TMJ disorders can be complex conditions, and treatment may vary depending on the underlying cause of the disorder and the severity of the symptoms.
