Your Path to Relief
Why Choose Us for TMJD and Jaw Pain Relief?
The link between the cervical spine and TMJD is a crucial aspect of effective treatment. Even if you’re not experiencing specific neck issues, research published in the Journal of Oral Rehabilitation suggests that examining the cervical spine in TMJD patients is essential. This finding is further supported by studies in Cranio and Clinical Oral Investigation.
At our clinic, you’ll find our chiropractor is highly trained to conduct a comprehensive assessment of your neck and jaw.

This approach ensures that the care you receive from your oral health physician yields even more remarkable results.
Understanding the Causes of TMJD
TMJD is an umbrella term encompassing a wide range of disorders, each manifesting various signs and symptoms. Some common indicators of TMJD include:
- Radiating Pain: Patients often experience radiating pain in the face, neck, or shoulders.
- Limited Jaw Movement: TMJD can lead to limited jaw movement or locking, making it challenging to open or close the mouth.
- Clicking or Grating Sounds: Painful clicking or grating sounds may occur when moving the jaw.
- Teeth Alignment Changes: Some individuals notice significant changes in the alignment of their upper and lower teeth.
In addition to these primary symptoms, individuals with TMJD may also experience clenching and tightness in the neck and jaw muscles. These symptoms can escalate to include headaches, earaches, dizziness, hearing difficulties, and challenges with swallowing, as reported by the American Chiropractic Association in 2001.
Interestingly, many TMJD patients do not attribute their symptoms to neck issues, yet cervical spine disorders often play a contributing role in TMJD’s persistence.
