Advanced protocols for TMJ pain

TMJ anatomy

TMJ is short for the temporomandibular joint, a two-sided synovial joint that allows the jaw to open and close smoothly.  Sometimes after extended dental work, or because of injury or chronic teeth grinding, people will have pain or “clicking” that prevents this joint from functioning properly.  I often assess and treat this complaint here at Spark.  Using the Activator protocol, I can check for many small discrepancies and correct them quickly and gently.  Chiropractic care for the jaw is a good place to start for minor jaw pain, and especially important to try before considering a more invasive surgical correction.  Here’s a PubMed article outlining Activator’s effectiveness: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12975628
