TMJ Dysfunction is the fancy way of saying that your jaw is having problems. Jaw pain, the more general term, is also used to describe pain in the TMJ or temporomandibular joints.
Clicking, popping, and locking of the jaw are common problems that can be treated with chiropractic. Another symptom can be grinding the teeth at night or during the day (called “bruxism”).
We will carefully examine the joints of your jaw and the surrounding structures to determine the cause of your pains. It might be due to the joints, the surrounding muscles, or problems in the upper neck.
Dr. Favero has extensive knowledge on the proper treatment for jaw pain because he has experienced it personally. He first noticed it when a roommate told him he was grinding his teeth at night. When he faced the stress of college classes he started having more intense jaw pain and sought treatment. After how much chiropractic helped him, he learned everything he could about it so he could be an expert in solving this problem for others.
