The temporomandibular joint connects your jaw to your head. When this joint becomes inflamed or injured, it can result in TMJ Syndrome, causing pain, headaches, earaches, toothaches, tinnitus and more.
The cause of this condition is often contributed to a trauma to the joint. Studies show that TMJ can also be a result of a misalignment of the cervical spine causing pressure on the surrounding nerves, causing the jaw to malfunction.
The close proximity of this joint to the cervical spine makes TMJ sufferers great candidates for Upper Cervical care. Atlas Orthogonal chiropractors, like Dr. Peddy, specialize in the top two bones in the neck, providing relief to many of their patients suffering with this pain.
