Basketball legend Michael Jordan has a great saying: “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” In our practice, we sometimes team up with other health professionals in the area so we can make an even bigger impact in the lives of our patients. For example, we’ve found that when our TMJ patients pair their jaw treatment with the expert guidance of a chiropractor, they heal faster and better. In this video, I sit down with chiropractor Dr. Kristen Zumberger to discuss how combining our specialties has a positive long-term effect on joint disorder patients.
As a dentist, I help patients suffering from the pain and discomfort of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) find relief. Many people who have TMD don’t even know it’s a serious condition and are unsure what causes it. Things like a jaw injury, misalignment of the teeth or jaw, poor posture, stress, and even gum chewing can put undue stress on your jaw joint, causing inflammation and pain.
Patients who experience symptoms of TMD such as jaw or face pain, difficulty opening or closing their jaw, and popping and clicking noises that come from the jaw find relief from some of the many solutions we offer. The benefit of relieving joint pain not only brings comfort to the patient, but also ensures the long-term health of your teeth. TMD can wear down or even damage teeth, only compounding the problem.
Teaming up with a chiropractor can further alleviate TMD symptoms by working on the muscles that control the jaw. By releasing the tension in the soft tissue surrounding the jaw joint. If you know of anyone seeking relief from TMD, please share this video with them. They might not know that help is available and you could be the answer to their pain!
