TMJ Chronic Pain

Chronic TMJ Pain Treatment and Relief

Chronic pain caused by temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, also known as TMD, can have a significant impact on daily life. This pain is often the result of issues with the jaw joint or surrounding muscles, commonly caused by excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching. Other factors such as arthritis or misalignment of the bite can also contribute to TMD. Symptoms may include frequent headaches and earaches, difficulty chewing or speaking, and even neck and shoulder pain.

Treatment options include physical therapy, medication, stress management techniques, and in severe cases, surgery. It’s important to seek professional help if you suspect you may be experiencing TMJ-related chronic pain, as it can have a negative effect on both physical and mental well-being. Taking steps to address the issue can lead to a noticeable improvement in quality of life.

At the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the South Shore, we specialize in treating this condition and relieving the pain and discomfort it can cause. Our team of doctors employs a multifaceted approach, combining physical therapy techniques with orthotic devices and medication management to address the root issue and provide long-term relief. We also offer treatments for sleep disorders, which can often be linked to TMJ, providing comprehensive care for our patients.
