Treating TMJD with Chiropractic in Bloomington IL

Chiropractic Bloomington IL TMJ

TMJD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction) in Bloomington IL is a collective term for a broad range of disorders displaying a variety of signs.

  • Radiating pain in the face, neck, or shoulders
  • Limited movement or locking of the jaw
  • Painful clicking or grating when opening or closing the mouth
  • Significant change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together

Symptoms can also include headaches, earaches, dizziness, hearing problems, and difficulty swallowing.
