TMD Treatment in
Cold Spring & Neighboring Communities

neck stretchingAt ProWellness Chiropractic and Rehab, we understand the debilitating impact of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) on your daily life. That’s why we offer comprehensive TMD treatment with chiropractors and physical therapists that addresses the underlying causes of jaw pain, headaches, and related symptoms.

If this is something you’re dealing with, we’re happy to let you know there is hope-naturally!

What is TMD?

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) refers to a range of conditions affecting the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. It can cause pain, discomfort, restricted jaw movement, clicking or popping sounds, and even headaches. TMD can be caused by various factors, including jaw misalignment, muscle tension, trauma, stress, underbite, overbite, or bruxism (teeth grinding.)

How Can TMD Treatment Help?

Our TMD treatment approach in Cold Spring is centered around helping alleviate pain and correcting movement patterns of the jaw for long-term resolution. When you come in for a visit, we’ll begin by learning about your history. We’ll also have you meet with a licensed physical therapist to understand what’s bothering you most and how we can work together to bring you the best possible results.

At ProWellness Chiropractic and Rehab, our number one goal is to get you relief as quickly as possible. We use a combination of evidence-based techniques, including:

  • Soft tissue mobilizations: Targeted techniques to release tension in the muscles surrounding the jaw joint.
  • Joint mobilizations: Gentle manipulation to improve joint mobility and reduce pain.
  • Therapeutic exercises: Customized exercises to strengthen and stabilize the jaw muscles.
  • Relaxation techniques: Emphasis on the “resting position of the jaw” to promote proper alignment and reduce strain.
  • Dry needling: The use of small, safe needles to relax tight or painful facial, neck, and shoulder muscles.

Who Can Benefit?

Care is suitable for individuals experiencing jaw pain, clicking sounds, headaches, and limited jaw movement. Additionally, if you wake up with headaches or have recurring headaches, it may be a sign of clenching or grinding during sleep. Our comprehensive approach ensures that we address both the immediate symptoms and the underlying causes, providing relief and improved quality of life.

To begin care, we typically recommend visiting the practice 2-3 times per week for the first four weeks. From there, we’ll reevaluate and taper your care as needed.

Real Patients, Real Results

We had the pleasure of working with a patient who was a dedicated nurse suffering from debilitating migraine headaches for years. Over time, we realized she had an underbite that was a contributing factor to her headaches. After tweaking her care plan to address the issue, she noticed an immediate improvement in her headaches. We utilized manual therapy techniques, such as dry needling and soft tissue mobilizations, along with orthodontia to address the root causes of her condition. Throughout her care plan, Sarah consistently reported feeling better and noticed her headaches diminishing. We can’t wait to do the same for you!

What Can a New Patient Expect?

As a new patient, you can expect a thorough intake session where we listen attentively to your concerns. We conduct objective assessments, including range of motion and strength measurements of orofacial, cervical, and shoulder muscles. Based on our findings, we create a personalized treatment plan that is easy to understand and follow. Our manual therapy techniques aim to provide relief from the very first visit, promoting your overall well-being.
