TMJ and upper cervical chiropractic care in Boise

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders affect the jaw joint and surrounding muscles, leading to pain, discomfort, and functional issues. These disorders can be challenging to manage, but upper cervical chiropractic care offers a promising approach. At Peak Chiropractic in Boise, we focus on treating TMJ disorders through precise and targeted upper cervical adjustments.

What is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ disorders involve dysfunction in the jaw joint and muscles controlling jaw movement. Common causes include jaw injuries, arthritis, and chronic teeth grinding.

Symptoms of TMJ Disorder:

  • Jaw pain and tenderness
  • Difficulty chewing or opening the mouth
  • Clicking or popping sounds in the jaw
  • Headaches and earaches
  • Neck and shoulder pain

Conventional Treatments for TMJ:

Traditional treatments for TMJ disorders often include medications, dental splints, and physical therapy. While these approaches can provide relief, they may not address the underlying causes.

How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Treats TMJ:

  1. Correcting Misalignments: Misalignments in the upper cervical spine can contribute to TMJ disorders by affecting the nerves and muscles associated with jaw function.
  2. Improving Nervous System Function: Proper alignment enhances nervous system function, reducing pain and improving jaw movement.
  3. Providing Long-Term Relief: Unlike conventional treatments, upper cervical care addresses the root cause, offering long-term relief from TMJ symptoms.

Patient Testimonials:

Many patients in Boise have found significant relief from TMJ disorders through upper cervical care at Peak Chiropractic. For instance, one patient experienced a reduction in jaw pain and improved jaw function after a series of upper cervical adjustments.

Conclusion:

Upper cervical chiropractic care offers an effective, non-invasive solution for TMJ disorders. By focusing on the alignment of the upper cervical spine, we provide long-term relief from pain and discomfort associated with TMJ. At Peak Chiropractic in Boise, we are committed to helping you achieve better jaw health.

I haven’t had a single symptom since the adjustment!
I was working in Boise and seen an ad for Peak Chiropractic, I suffered with migraines, vertigo and severe nerve pain in my shoulders for 15+ years and thought it was something I was just going to live with. After an informative consultation then some 3-D imaging, a severe misalignment was found in my upper cervical area. Dr. Johnathon Finney made one adjustment before I had to go back home to Kentucky and it changed my life! I haven’t had a single symptom since the adjustment! AND he found a doctor near my home town that he went to school with and shared my files so I can have care when I am home and when I am in Boise for work! I cannot thank Dr. Johnathon enough for giving me my life back and think everyone needs to experience what Peak Chiropractic and their upper cervical care can do for them!

Dr Jon and Dr Kyara listened to me, heard me, empathized with me, and helped me.
Peak has been a game changer for me. I have struggled with migraines for years. After a lot different trial and errors I found Peak and now I can say I have found a solution. Dr Jon and Dr Kyara listened to me, heard me, empathized with me, and helped me. They were super flexible and understanding with my busy schedule. I am more than grateful not be losing a day a week to migraines. I am excited to continue seeing them and experience even more health benefits.

I have had more energy, less pain in all areas of my body, and I've been sleeping like a baby.
I truly don't know where to begin. I had never heard of upper cervical chiropractic care prior to meeting Dr. John and Dr. Kyara. However, I had been going to a chiropractor every two weeks for the last 18 years for "pain management". Over time, my body started to expect an adjustment right at that two week mark and the pain in my back, neck, and jaw became unbearable, even a few days before my regularly scheduled adjustment. I have always trusted chiropractic care, but one twisted neck adjustment left me with a long lasting clicking in my neck and the consistency of my symptoms left me feeling defeated, especially when the vertigo kicked in. I had no energy to get through even the slightest daily activities and I became frustrated at the thought of how much time and money I have spent to only receive such temporary relief. When I walked into Peak chiropractic, I was warmly welcomed by both doctors and was given a tour of the facility, where Dr. John showed me all of the technological recourses they would use to access my spine. The doctors took the time to educate me on EVERYTHING I was to expect in my healing journey and what to do to allow my body to hold the adjustments and heal itself. To my surprise, upper cervical care doesn't involve the twisting and cracking that causes more symptoms than what I came in with. In fact, I could expect to pain free in just a few short weeks (what a relief)! How is that possible you might ask? Trust me, I didn't believe it either. I was told that the misalignment in the top two bones of my spine were likely the cause of all the symptoms I had been experiencing since I was a kid. We immediately got to work and after only one adjustment, I felt like my body was able hold its adjustment longer than it has ever before. Mind you, I am still going through my program with Peak Chiropractic, but after this last adjustment, that consistent clicking in my neck that has never been absent before, left for the very first time. Even after these very few weeks, I have had more energy, less pain in all areas of my body, and I've been sleeping like a baby. I just wanted to scream it from the rooftops! For the first time in 18 years, I am feeling hopeful. I wish everyone knew about upper cervical care, so if you are someone who experiences similar symptoms, please go see Dr. John and Dr. Kyara. I promise your life is going to change. Mine definitely has!
