Injured in an Auto Accident? Check This Joint

Additionally, the TMJ can be an underlying cause of your headaches and neck pain secondary to stress related grinding/clenching.

An injury of this kind can leave your haw out of alignment, causing painful clicking, grinding and even locking, which can be scary and unexpected. Some practitioners find the jaw difficult to treat because there are so many muscles involved in its movement.

At Clayton Park Chiropractic Centre, Dr. Sasha uses a specific and gentle approach that aims to re-align the TMJ so that you don’t have to deal with the unpleasant symptoms.

During your first visit, Dr. Sasha will examine your jaw and ask you questions to uncover exactly what’s going on. After she has a better idea of the problem, she’ll design a custom care plan that works to restore proper alignment to your jaw, therefore improving function.
