TMJ Pain Relief with Chiropractic

TMJ Pain Relief with Chiropractic

Depew TMJ pain recoveryAs trauma to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is often quite painful, we do our best to help our Depew patients find relief as quickly and effectively as possible. In fact, Dr. Palmer will tell you that the medical research shows just how much chiropractic care can help ease discomfort in the TMJ.

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With TMJ Pain and Discomfort

For instance, a study published in Physiotherapy Theory and Practice involved 15 participants with temporomandibular disorders who were managed with neck adjustments, middle-back manipulation, and trigger point therapy via dry needling. Patients were examined prior to these methods and at two weeks and two months post-treatment. The authors reported positive outcomes such as reduced pain, greater jaw mobility, and lower disability at both follow-ups.

Another research study carried out a review of almost 800 studies involving manual and manipulative therapy for conditions such as TMJ and discovered similar findings. The group concluded that there is a "fair...level of evidence" that chiropractic care can help ease symptoms associated with jaw pain and other upper extremity disorders.

This is great news since the triggers of TMJ are largely unknown. While trauma to the jaw area can cause pain symptoms, there are other sources to consider as well, such as grinding teeth, osteoarthritis, and clenching of the jaw due to stress.
