Understanding TMJ and Its Effects

TMJ disfunction can cause debilitating pain and affect your quality of life. It is characterised by problems with the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. While the exact causes of TMJ disfunction can vary, common triggers include the following:

  • Dental Procedures – TMJ disfunction often occurs after dental treatments, such as tooth extractions or extensive dental work.
  • Stress and Teeth Grinding – High levels of stress can lead to teeth grinding, which puts excessive pressure on the jaw joints and muscles.
  • Instrumental Activities – Certain activities, like playing the violin, can increase the risk of TMJ disfunction due to prolonged pressure on the jaw.

Providing Effective and Personalised Solutions

Chiropractor Robert van Schalkwyk provides comprehensive evaluations and personalised treatment plans tailored to your specific needs. Our approach includes:

We’ll carefully observe your jaw movements, bite alignment, and range of motion to identify any restrictions or abnormalities. This evaluation helps us understand the root cause of your TMJ disfunction and develop an effective treatment plan.

We focus on relieving muscle tension and restoring proper function to the jaw joints. Our treatments involve targeted techniques, such as masseter and temporalis muscle release, and controlled adjustments to the TMJ joints. These interventions provide relief and promote healing.

We may incorporate additional therapies to address your pain. These can include fascial release techniques, dry needle therapy, and upper cervical adjustments. These complementary approaches help alleviate pressure and restore balance to the affected areas.
