Tempromadibular joint pain (TMJ PAIN)



This can vary from chronic pain to clicking of the jaw and even restriction of opening and closing of the mouth. Often people seek treatment from Dentists to physiotherapy which can be helpful, but often we find there is more to the jaw problems than muscles and joints. TMJ/jaw pain is common and can be very complicated and treatments can, unfortunately, be short-lived if the root cause isn;t addressed. It is important to know that TMJ can arise from different causes such as :
- Direct trauma to the jaw such as in sports 

- misaligned teeth or bite 

- Muscular issues 
- Joint Arthritis 

- Anxiety and chronic stress 

- Gut issues 
- Hormonal shifts 

Whatever the potential cause we apply the below methods to create a plan of action for you 




Acupuncture's unique approach 


A neurofunctional and holistic approach to Jaw pain is critical for successful outcomes. Our training and treatment methods apply a different approach. We scan and assess the jaw and its associated muscles and take an additional look at how other joint structures such as the shoulder or upper back posture may be impacting the jaw in a compensatory manner. We also delve deep into other contributing factors such as stress and anxiety which are factors that often contribute to clenching and grinding. With our unique treatment, we can help treat pain, muscles and underlying causes such as anxiety and more. This provides better outcomes and helps clients see long term resolution
