Natural TMJ Relief With Chiropractic Care | Chiropractor for TMJ in Belmar, NJ

Hello, everyone! Today, I’m shining a light on TMJ and TMD, conditions that affect the jaw and can significantly impact one’s quality of life. Many people suffer from TMJ (temporomandibular joint syndrome) and TMD (temporomandibular dysfunction), experiencing symptoms such as jaw pain, earaches, neck discomfort, headaches, and facial pain. These issues can be quite debilitating, leading to a dire need for effective treatment.

Decoding TMJ and TMD: An Insightful Assessment

In our office, we take TMJ and TMD seriously, understanding how these conditions can drastically alter daily living. To accurately diagnose and assess the extent of the dysfunction, we use a precise tool known as a caliper. This device allows us to measure the jaw’s movement accurately, providing invaluable insights into the state of the TMJ.

During the assessment, we look at how the jaw deviates to the left and right and how wide it can open. Normal jaw movement is around 10 millimeters to each side and a wide opening without pain. However, it’s not uncommon to find patients with restricted movement, indicating a deeper issue within the TMJ.

A Path to Relief Without Surgery

The good news is that TMJ and TMD can often be managed without the need for surgery. In our practice, we’ve found chiropractic care to be incredibly effective in treating these conditions, offering patients relief from the pain and discomfort associated with TMJ and TMD. Our approach focuses on identifying and correcting the dysfunction, providing a non-invasive solution that addresses the root cause of the problem.

If you’re struggling with TMJ or TMD, experiencing symptoms like jaw clenching, grinding, popping, clicking, or pain, it’s crucial to seek professional assessment and treatment. At our offices, we’re equipped to evaluate your condition thoroughly and guide you toward the relief you deserve.
