TMJ Burlington

If you suffer from emotional or physical stress, grind your teeth, or have underlying spinal problems, you probably know the aches and pains of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders well.

If you’ve woken up with headaches, a jaw that’s sore and makes clicking noises when you eat or yawn, or you’ve experienced it locked in place, it’s a good time for a visit to The Healing Path Chiropractic and Wellness Centre.

How Does Chiropractic Help TMJ?

The temporomandibular joint can be felt by placing your fingers in front of your ears and opening your mouth. Skilled chiropractic care can restore proper nervous system control of involved muscles and ligaments, reducing pain, stiffness, clicking sounds or locked jaw.

Dr. Obeid and his team use release techniques on the muscles of the jaw, both outside and inside, as well as manual adjustments of the upper cervical spine and Activator adjustments to the TMJ joint itself to return mobility to the joint and reduce a patient’s symptoms.

The techniques help remove pressure from the nervous system and gently restore the skull/jaw, spine and pelvis to their proper position, allowing the body to return to its optimally healthy state.

What to Expect

After filling out paperwork in advance of your first appointment, Dr. Obeid or a team member will review it to have a better handle on what you are experiencing, your lifestyle, and your health history. You will then receive standard physical, orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic tests to determine the root cause(s) of your problem.

If further diagnostic imaging is necessary, Dr. Obeid and his team will let you know, and additional views may be taken to visualize the location of any spinal problems, reveal any pathology, and make your chiropractic care more precise. If necessary, an adjustment may be done at this time. A second visit will be scheduled.

Your Report of Findings

During your second visit, the doctor will give you a report of findings, as well as recommendations for care. This will include a diagnosis, how we plan to address the problem, when you should expect results, and how much it will cost. If you decide to proceed, you’ll receive your care plan and schedule the next visits.
