Don’t Lose Another Night’s Sleep To TMJ Dysfunction

The TMJ is the joint which forms a bridge to the temporal bones in your skull, found on the sides of your face, in front of your ears.  A misalignment of the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) can cause clicking sounds while eating and if left untreated, severe pain, including headaches and shoulder pain.  The causes of dysfunction in the TMJ (known as temporomandibular disorder, or TMD) can vary, ranging from grinding or clenching the teeth to stress that causes tension in the jaw.

Untreated disorders of the TMJ can result in tenderness and pain in the jaw, neck and shoulders, difficulty chewing and an inability to open the mouth fully.  Serious symptoms include tinnitus (ringing in the ears), problems with hearing, or persistent dizziness.  If you’re experiencing any or all of these symptoms, or losing sleep due to TMJ dysfunction, a visit to one of Back and Body’s team of certified chiropractic professionals could solve the problem.  Only recently considered an option for those suffering from TMD, the chiropractic adjustment is helping many suffering with the disorder.
