What Is TMJ?

Rochester Hills chiropractor helps with temporal mandibular joint dysfunctionTMJ stands for temporal mandibular joint dysfunction. The temporal mandibular joint connects your jawbone to your skull on each side, working like a hinge to open and close the jaw. You use this joint constantly, often without even realizing it for some common tasks as swallowing and yawning. So if the joint loses its proper alignment, you may experience headaches, earaches, odd noises with jaw movement, jaw tension and teeth grinding. Eventually the misalignment and resulting wear and tear lead to painful arthritis in the jaw hinge.

TMJ can stem from a variety of causes, ranging from chronic conditions such as dental trouble to injury from a sudden impact. Whatever the cause, however, you can find relief -- not from surgery or drugs, but from a qualified chiropractor.

Dr Ron Fried helps with back pain and othe joint problemsWhy Chiropractic?

Chiropractic works on TMJ for the same reasons it works on back pain and other joint problems. A chiropractor knows how to gently re-align bones and attached tissues to restore proper function. When you visit our center with a possible case of TMJ, we first perform a detailed evaluation, taking x-rays and considering your current dietary routine, fitness level and other lifestyle factors. We can then customize an orthotic splint that fits in your mouth. This splint will slowly and gently guide your "bite" back into its correct alignment.

We want to stamp out TMJ jaw pain in Rochester Hills -- one healthy bite at a time. If you believe that we have described the source of your suffering, we hope you will contact us through our website to schedule a consultation.
