Did you know that Dr. Kuty, a chiropractor, successfully treats TMJ and jaw disorders!?!
The Temporo-Mandibular Joint or TMJ is located on either side of the face, connecting the lower jaw to the skull. The joints work in synergy with the facial bones and multiple pairs of muscles to allow multi-directional movement of the mouth and lower jaw. Any disturbance of this balance can trigger the cycle characteristic of TMJ disorders. When muscles and joints are not correctly working together, muscle dysfunction and pain can result.
Grinding, clenching, and even swallowing build stress in the muscles. They begin to hold a tense and unnatural position and before long this tension travels by chain reaction throughout the body.
Many people suffer from clicking and jaw pain, as well as, dizziness, ear aches, facial, head, neck, shoulder, and back pain all from the TMJ. They may also suffer chronic fatigue, irritability, blocked ears, and joint pain or numbness that may seem to have no relation to the teeth and the jaws. These cases are frequently misdiagnosed or unrecognized by physicians whose standard training has not equipped them to understand the relationship between teeth, jaw alignment, and the rest of the body. Consequently, thousands of chronic sufferers go from one medical specialty to another trying to find a solution.
Some studies suggest as many as one quarter to one third of the population suffers some form of TMJ disorder. If you have recurring headaches or jaw pain, you may find relief at Kuty Chiropractic. We can perform a thorough examination to see how your jaw is affecting your health.
Manipulation & Myofascial Therapy: Dr. Kuty uses an Activator Adjusting Instrument and her hands to adjust the misaligned TMJ joint and muscles, helping to restore normal biomechanics to the jaw. This helps to improve joint function and reduce pain.
