Recently a patient came in frantic and terrified with her jaw locked open! Her husband took her to a nearby Urgent Care for help and they said there was nothing they could do for her—go to the ER.
On her way to the ER they decided to stop by Foresight Chiropractic Wellness Center to see if the doctors there could help her. Sure enough, the response she received there was…”Certainly, come in!” She had been a regular patient during her pregnancy but hadn’t been in for a few months
Her Atlas, the top bone of her spine, was mis-aligned, which contributed to the problem in her jaw. Mis-alignment in the spine inhibits communication in the Central Nervous System that controls and coordinates all function in the body. After gently re-aligning the spine and giving the body time to re-set and relax, the doctor then adjusted and re-aligned the jaw joint and the patient was able to close her mouth. Such relief! No drugs, no painful therapies, no long wait times in the ER and no expensive bill.
Chiropractic care, particularly Atlas Orthogonal, upper cervical specialists, can be a very effective treatment for TMJ, clearing the nervous system and relieving the tension in the muscles. Additional treatment the doctor may employ is trigger point therapy or cold laser treatment. Chiropractic does not cure any diseases but helps the body heal and function optimally. It can help with many conditions such as lock jaw and TMJ issues, pregnancy, fibromyalgia, trigeminal neuralgia, migraines, constipation, indigestion, colic, and anxiety in addition to neck and back pains.
Regular chiropractic care improves the function of the entire body no matter what your age. A properly aligned spine helps the body to preform optimally.
