Jaw Pain Relief with TMJ Treatment
For unknown reasons, jaw pain has become an increasing problem in the general population. Clicking, locking, and pain of the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint) often leads to more systemic symptoms such as headaches, ear pain, and neck pain. This condition is challenging to treat, as it is often discovered late after a significant amount of damage has been done.
Through a combination of hands-on treatment and other modalities (e.g. injections, dry needling, home stretches), an osteopathic musculoskeletal specialist will try to re-balance the jaw, head, and neck to provide jaw pain relief. Depending on severity, the clicking and popping may never entirely resolve. But the pain, locking, headaches, ear pain, and neck pain often improve with treatment.
