  • Jaw pain or soreness

  • Difficulty opening and closing the mouth

  • Clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth

  • Earaches or ringing in the ears

  • Headaches or migraines

  • Neck and shoulder pain

  • Toothaches or tooth sensitivity

Causes of TMJ dysfunction

TMJ Dysfunction can result from various factors, including:

  • Misaligned teeth or bite (malocclusion)

  • Teeth grinding (bruxism) or clenching

  • Arthritis in the temporomandibular joint

  • Stress-induced muscle tension

Chiropractic Care for TMJ Dysfunction in Mansfield

At Calibration Chiropractic + Functional Health, we offer a non-invasive, drug-free approach to treating TMJ Dysfunction by addressing the root causes of the issue. Our chiropractors will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. Treatment options may include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: Gentle manipulation of the jaw and neck can help realign the temporomandibular joint and relieve pressure on the surrounding muscles and nerves.

  • Soft tissue therapy: Techniques such as trigger point therapy and myofascial release can help relax the muscles and release tension in the jaw and neck area.

  • Therapeutic exercises: Specific exercises can be prescribed to strengthen and stretch the muscles surrounding the TMJ, improving function and reducing pain.

  • Postural correction: Poor posture can contribute to TMJ Dysfunction, so our chiropractors will recommend strategies to improve your posture, reducing strain on the neck and jaw.

  • Stress management: Since stress can exacerbate TMJ symptoms, we may provide guidance on stress-reduction techniques such as deep breathing exercises, meditation, or yoga.
