The Connection Between TMJ And Spinal Alignment

Have you had to deal with the tightness and pain associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders aka TMD?  Irritation to this small joint can contribute to a host of symptoms including jaw pain, headaches, and neck pain.  Many times the focus of treatment is to restore normal function of the joint by re-aligning the bite and rehabbing the associated muscles.

Upper cervical specific chiropractics have clinical experience suggesting a close relationship between the neck and the jaw.  This indicates that careful consideration of the alignment of the neck may be equally important in treating some TMD cases.  To learn more watch this video with Dr. Jake Dodds, a NUCCA chiropractor in Alexandria, VA.
