Temporomandibular disorders arise from problems with the muscles of the jaw or the temporomandibular joint itself. TMJ disorders can cause tenderness in the muscles of the face and jaw, neck and shoulders, or around the ears when one chews, speaks, or simply opens the mouth wide. Our doctors have been able to help those affected with this painful condition without the use of costly surgery; read on!
"After the birth of my son, my jaw would be locked almost every morning and it would take a great effort to open my mouth. It would click while eating constantly and often throughout the day. I tried physical therapy and seeing a jaw specialist [who] said I would have to undergo a $4000 therapy including wearing a splint 24/7... [and] injections in the face which could cause paralysis. I met Elise and Rocky while very pregnant, installing their door graphics... I am about 90% improved from when I started treatment. I highly recommend Impact Chiropractic."
