Jaw pain is generally caused by any discomfort at the temporomandibular joint. This joint is located just in front of the ears. The Temporomandibular joint is quite flexible and enables the base of the jaw to function properly. It is one of those joints that are used more frequently than other joints. This joint is built with two bones that are segregated by the fibrocartilaginous disc.
The Temporomandibular joint is covered with ligaments and muscles that control the position and jaw function. And when both the muscles are relaxed, both jaws can easily open or close, talk, yawn, chew, and move side to side comfortably.
Like any other joint of your body, an osteopath can effectively treat the jaw joint by professional Osteopathy Manchester treatment.
Reasons of jaw pain:
There are multiple reasons for pain in the temporomandibular joint. And an osteopath can effectively support you to manage the musculoskeletal concerns. There are chances that muscles can go out of control and the jaw become sealed or weak. This is usually connected to the neck and teeth dysfunction clenching because of high stress & anxiety.
There is a disc that is connected to the joint. If that disc is not positioned perfectly, then it can cause severe injury at the jaw. And that disc can also get dysfunctional because of the wear and tear of clicking or locking. Trauma at the face & head can likewise induce pain in the jaw.
The side effects of dental concerns can develop jaw pain. It can also happen because of keeping your mouth open for a longer period of time. Additional reasons for the dental concussion can be tooth removal, root canal, or other tooth extraction. Braces can also induce jaw pain, as the whole face & head have to adjust in straightening the teeth.
And some other jaw pain cases can also be connected to sinus congestion, eardrum infection, headache, toothache, and nerve pain.
