Many patients with whiplash, headache, and fibromyalgia develop painful jaw symptoms. These symptoms are often related to temporomandibular joint disorders, or TMD. This joint allows your jaw to move with ease.
A new case study shows that chiropractic can effectively relieve TMD. Fifteen patients received chiropractic spinal adjustments, trigger point dry needling, and mobilization of the joint and spine.Within two weeks, the patients had significant improvements in disability, pain, and jaw range of motion. They continued to experience these improvements at the two month follow-up visit.
This adds to other recent research demonstrating the benefits of chiropractic for TMD. For lasting relief of jaw pain, call our office today.

“I started out using this facility from a groupon, and have been getting PT/Chiro work for the past 3 months. Staff is super polite and helpful. They really care about fixing your aches and pains (for me it was back/shoulders/forearms) fixed. Staff is willing to help outside of hours through emails and exercise routines. I would recommend to anyone looking to get their body stronger or suffer from aches/stiffness. Dr. Brosio and PT staff (Roy, Nicki, and others) have gone above and beyond the normal expectation to provide great care.”
“Hands down the best Chiro experience on this side of the burbs. I would highly recommend.”
