Chiropractic Care in Bloomington, MN: Chiropractic Treatment for TMJ Syndrome

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJD or TMD), or TMJ syndrome, is an umbrella term covering acute or chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint. The abbreviation “TMJ” literally refers to the joint but is often used to refer to any disorders or symptoms of this region.  This joint is one of the most frequently used in the body. The disorder and resultant dysfunction can result in significant pain and impairment.

A thorough examination of your posture, upper neck and shoulder girdle is imperative to proper treatment of the TMJ due to the significant influence these areas have on the joint.  The upper neck is very commonly found to be involved in patients with many of these symptoms.  Sometimes the upper neck is found to be the primary source of the ear, jaw or headache pain.

What Can a Chiropractor Do For Temporomandibular Joint Disorder?

Because the disorder transcends the boundaries between several health-care disciplines, there are a variety of treatment approaches.  Chiropractic Treatments for TMJ may be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments.
