How can chiropractors help with my TMJ? 

When thinking about a painful problem that has to do with your jaw or mouth, the first doctor you think of would probably be a dentist, not a chiropractic physician; however, a visit to your locally accredited chiropractor could be your solution to start alleviating your TMJ-related pain.

A study done by the Tokyo medical and dental university found that people who used natural practices and jaw exercises helped to reduce TMJ symptoms better and faster than those who used jaw splints. Participants who used holistic practices such as maintaining good posture and eating soft foods in their diet saw improvements in their mouth-opening range and reductions in pain more so than their counterparts who wore maxillary stabilization appliances while sleeping at night.
