Jaw Pain and TMD Relief in Mt Gravatt

radiating jaw painJaw pain is a common ailment that affects people of all ages. Typically stemming from tension in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), it can include pain, tightness, teeth grinding, headaches, “clicking” in the jaw and other symptoms collectively referred to as temporomandibular disorders (TMD).

People don’t often think of chiropractic care as a possible solution for TMD, but chiropractic is designed to restore proper movement and alignment to the joints of the body—including the joints in your jaw. At BodyWise Chiropractic, our chiropractor Dr Daniel Bank has nearly 25 years’ experience providing customised care for all types of musculoskeletal conditions.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Many people go to a dentist first when they notice they have jaw pain, and a dentist may prescribe a night guard to protect your teeth from grinding at night. Chiropractic, on the other hand, looks at the joints of the body to determine how misalignments can be causing interference in the nervous system and tension in other joints.

Dr Bank will do a thorough examination to determine if there are misalignments or joints that are not moving correctly, particularly in the neck, jaw and cranial bones. Addressing these misalignments may restore optimal nervous system function, allowing your jaw joints to move correctly. In addition, restoring movement to the joints of the neck may relieve tension in your TMJ, reducing or eliminating your pain and clicking.

Our Holistic Approach

Dr Bank doesn’t just examine your area of pain or dysfunction—he takes a whole-body approach to care and offers a variety of techniques to help restore optimal function to the entire nervous system. When your nervous system works as it should, the rest of your body can work at a higher level as well, creating healing from within.

Our approach to care may include gentle lymphatic drainage techniques to relieve toxin and fluid buildup that can cause pressure and inflammation in the body and result in a wide range of symptoms.
