TMJ

Signs or Symptoms

Clicking, decreased mouth opening, headaches, tinnitus, ear ringing, dizziness, vertigo.

Description

Imbalances in the motion of the jawbone can have far reaching symptomatic effects. These run the gamut from severe headaches to changes in the posture.

Causes

Malocclusion, muscle imbalances, faulty posture.

Standard Treatment

Muscle relaxants, dental splints, physical therapy to reduce muscle tension.

AK Approach

The examination begins with the premise that the head must be level with the ground for the jaw to open properly. Findings that cause head imbalance are found and corrected. The muscles of the jaw are then evaluated for tension and coordinated action. Treatments aimed at equalizing the tension and normalizing the opening and closing of the jaws are then performed. A coordinated treatment program between a qualified chiropractor and dental team may be needed. Other lifestyle modifications are used to prevent or minimize exacerbating the condition. A specific program for your needs is created.
