Genesis Chiropractic Clinic is dedicated to serving the Horsham / Warrington Area by providing relief to its patients by offering corrective care for a variety of health conditions. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJD) is one of many conditions treated by the highly trained doctors at Genesis Chiropractic Clinic.
Chiropractic treatment of TMJD can correct the underlying cause of the disorder by correcting spinal misalignments and by re-positioning the jaw. Therapeutic exercises are given in conjunction to chiropractic adjustments to improve tracking and movement of the jaw.
The Journal of Oral Rehabilitation along with the Journal of Cranio and Clinical Oral Investigation recommends examination of the cervical spine in TMJD patients, even without cervical complaints. We are highly trained to examine your neck and jaw to determine the best course of co-managed care with your oral health physician.
TMJD patients can achieve pain relief with proper co-managed corrective care. Treatments promote the body to function optimally and respond to dental changes so that care received has greater and lasting results.
We have developed, tested, and refined our treatment protocol. The vast majority of our patients who follow our treatment guidelines achieve significant relief from their symptoms.
Many top experts, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), recommend conservative and reversible treatments as the optimal route of action. We agree and usually recommend choosing non-invasive treatments first – rather than aggressive and permanent treatments, like surgery and implants.
