TMJ Treatment in North York

Our North York Chiropractor Can Treat Your TMJ

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects your jawbone to your skull, acts as a sliding hinge. Each side of your jaw has one of these joints. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD), which are conditions affecting the TMJ, can cause discomfort in both the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. At Newlight Pain Clinic North York, we are committed to helping individuals who are dealing with TMJ pain. Our team of chiropractors and physiotherapists is available to provide the necessary support. If you are experiencing TMJ pain in North York, take the first step towards your treatment by scheduling an appointment with us today.

Causes of TMJ Pain:

Pinpointing the precise cause of a person’s TMJ disorder is often challenging. The pain experienced may stem from a combination of factors, including genetics, arthritis, or a jaw injury. Additionally, individuals with jaw pain may exhibit teeth clenching or grinding habits (bruxism), though many who do so never go on to develop TMJ disorders.

Typically, the pain and discomfort linked to TMJ disorders are temporary and can be alleviated through self-care or nonsurgical treatments. Surgery is usually considered a last option after trying conservative approaches, but certain individuals with TMJ disorders may find relief through surgical interventions.

How We Treat TMJ in North York

TMJ is a fairly common occurrence, although the exact reasons are not fully understood. It is theorized that hormonal changes have an impact on the alignment of the jaw. Additionally, it has been observed that there is an increase in teeth grinding due to inadequate sleep. TMJ pain can significantly impact your quality of life!

Our North York Chiropractors utilize spinal adjustments to alter how the head and jaw are positioned, which releases TMJ pain.
