Causes of Jaw Pain

You know what? Figuring out the root cause of jaw pain is the best way to make it feel better. Most of the time, jaw strain lasts for a long time because of these causes. Which then makes you feel frustrated! Among the most common causes include,

Temporomandibular Joint and Muscle Disorder (TMD)

TMD can result from issues with the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. Causes include jaw injuries, teeth grinding, or arthritis affecting the joint.

Cluster Headaches

Intense, throbbing pain often centered around one eye or temple. It may lead to jawbone pain as a secondary symptom due to the proximity of facial nerves.

Sinus Problems

For people who have a sinus illness or stuffy nose, the area around their jaw may hurt and feel pressured. Pain may worsen with specific head movements or when bending forward.

Tooth Pain

If your jaw hurts, it could be due to a cavity, a mouth infection, or another dental issue. Poor dental hygiene or untreated dental problems may also contribute to jaw pain.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

One of the signs of jaw pain is sudden, severe facial pain that is often caused by touch or movement. The jaw may be affected due to the involvement of the trigeminal nerve.

Heart Attack

Not often, but jaw pain, especially in women, can lead to a heart attack. Seek immediate medical attention if jaw pain is accompanied by chest discomfort.

Symptoms of Jaw Pain

As discussed earlier, various factors can cause jaw pain, and identifying the specific cause often involves considering a range of symptoms. These are a few of the most prevalent causes of jaw pain.
  • Headache
  • Jaw Dysfunction
  • Facial pain
  • Earache
  • Tenderness at glands
  • No salivary flow
Don’t let these become a constant companion. Our specialized chiropractic care targets these symptoms head-on.

Treatment Options for Jaw Pain Relief

Gentle Adjustments

Imagine your jaw as a puzzle and chiropractors as the puzzle masters. They use gentle, strategic moves to put those pieces back in place. There is no pain, just sweet relief.

Muscle Relaxation Techniques

Have you ever had a tight jaw? It’s like having a mini Hulk clenching your muscles. Chiropractors know the secret handshake to calm those muscles down so you can bid farewell to tension.

Myofascial Release

Our chiropractors employ myofascial release techniques to address the fascial connective tissue around the jaw. This aids in relieving tension and promoting flexibility for improved jaw function.

Cranial Adjusting

Cranial adjusting techniques are utilized to address misalignments in the skull bones, promoting overall cranial balance and alleviating pressure on the jaw.

Stress-Busting Magic

Stress is like a ninja that attacks your jaw. Chiropractors know how to kick anxiety to the curb, leaving your jaw in a state of blissful relaxation.

Lifestyle Tweaks

Chiropractors aren’t just about the quick fixes. They’ll drop some knowledge bombs on lifestyle changes that help in relieving jaw pain: simple tweaks, significant results. Say farewell to jaw pain, and welcome to the dream team of chiropractors. They’re the heroes your jaw deserves!

After having my wisdom teeth removed, I was in serious pain and couldn’t open my mouth more than 30% for over a week. My dentist said it could take weeks or a month for the jaw to heal, but Dr. Eymann was able to improve my mobility and greatly reduce the pain in 15 minutes. Super grateful and overall awesome experience.
