Expertly treating pain in the Lexington, KY area

Stinson Chiropractic Center can provide effective support for Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) issues through chiropractic care, and the inclusion of K-laser treatment can enhance the overall therapeutic approach. Here's how our services may help with TMJ:

Chiropractic Care:

  • Jaw Alignment Assessment: Chiropractors will assess the alignment of the jaw and identify any misalignments that may contribute to TMJ issues.
  • Gentle Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments may be applied to the jaw and surrounding areas to correct misalignments and improve joint function.
  • Posture Correction: Poor posture can affect the jaw and contribute to TMJ problems. Chiropractors may provide guidance on maintaining proper posture to reduce stress on the jaw.

Soft Tissue Techniques:

  • Massage Therapy: Soft tissue manipulation can help relax the muscles around the jaw, reducing tension and promoting better jaw function.
  • Trigger Point Therapy: Chiropractors may use trigger point therapy to release tension in specific areas of the jaw and surrounding muscles.

K-Laser Treatment:

  • Pain Management: K-laser therapy can help manage pain associated with TMJ by reducing inflammation and promoting the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain relievers.
  • Muscle Relaxation: The laser's effects on cellular activity can promote muscle relaxation, reducing tension in the jaw and surrounding areas.
  • Improved Healing: K-laser treatment enhances cellular metabolism and can contribute to the healing process of damaged tissues in the TMJ area.

Individualized Treatment Plans:

  • Identifying Triggers: Chiropractors will work with you to identify triggers for your TMJ symptoms, such as clenching or grinding teeth, stress, or poor posture.
  • Customized Approach: Treatment plans are tailored to your specific condition, addressing the underlying causes and symptoms of TMJ dysfunction.

Oral Health Collaboration:

  • Referral or Collaboration: In some cases, chiropractors may collaborate with dentists or oral health professionals to ensure comprehensive care for TMJ issues.
  • Oral Health Education: Chiropractors may provide education on proper oral habits and techniques to minimize stress on the jaw.

Holistic Approach:

  • Stress Management: Stress can exacerbate TMJ symptoms. Chiropractors may provide stress management techniques to help reduce tension and improve overall well-being.
  • Lifestyle Recommendations: Guidance on lifestyle factors such as diet and hydration that can impact TMJ health may be offered.
