There are many people throughout the City of Atlanta that are not aware of Chiropractic care going beyond conditions and injuries that affect the spine. Not only do our Atlanta Chiropractors treat a plethora of conditions that go beyond the spine, but we also provide support that helps patients maximize their health.
One particular condition that affects thousands of residents and is treated through Chiropractic care is jaw pain or TMJ/TMD. Such health issues can be harrowing and debilitating since we use our jaw throughout the day. Our Atlanta Chiropractors provide non-invasive, holistic treatment solutions that help patients overcome their symptoms and jaw pain without having to consider prescription medications or surgery.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
The temporomandibular joint is positioned ahead of the ear and is responsible for allowing you to extend or close your jaw. There are a variety of factors that can affect the health and function of your temporomandibular joint, leading to TMJ disorder or jaw pain. Most often, patients experience TMJ disorder after being exposed to blunt trauma or ongoing stress.
Symptoms Associated With Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)
- Pain that travels or extends through the temples and down the jaw line
- Inability to open your jaw
- Failure to close your jaw
- Consistent clicking or popping noises
- A sensation that makes it seem like your teeth are not lined up correctly
- Recurring headaches
These symptoms can appear and disappear randomly, making it difficult to predict how your day will go when suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ can be extremely stressful and requires an experienced Chiropractor to overcome.

Through massage, myofascial release controlled exercises, and light force adjustments – we can help you overcome your symptoms and return to your routine.
