Facial Pain/TMJ

Facial Pain and Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ)

If you are having jaw problems, Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (“TMJ”), or pain in your face, then your trigeminal nerve is most likely involved. The trigeminal nerve is the part of your nervous system that helps with biting, chewing and swallowing as well as sending pain, touch and temperature sensations from your face and scalp to your brain. It is your cranial nerve 5 that branches off from the brain stem to your face and scalp.

Your cervical spine protects many sensitive structures. The vertebral artery carries blood and oxygen through the top 6 bones in the neck before supplying the brainstem with its blood supply. Misalignments in this area may pinch nerves and irritate the vertebral artery causing nerve and vascular problems. This neurovascular compression may cause pain into your head, face or jaw.

Our approach at Lynch Chiropractic to help people eliminate their jaw pain, TMJ and face pain may include:

  • Atlas Orthogonal Instrument Adjusting is an advanced, scientific instrument program that moves the top vertebra (bone) back level under the base of the skull and helps straighten out the rest of the spine. Numerous studies show that AO is a safe and effective treatment.
  • Neck and Spine Instrument Adjusting are done with a hand-held instrument and without any twisting or thrusting motions. These chiropractic adjustments reduce pain and discomfort, reduce inflammation, improve your flexibility, increase your range of motion, restore joint motion, improve your nervous system and prevent early on-set of Osteoarthritis.
  • Low Level Laser Therapy to reduce inflammation, reduce free radical production and oxidative stress, improve blood flow, enhance tissue repair and improve cellular energy production.
  • Rapid Release Therapy to release scar tissue adhesions.
  • Cranial Adjustments to reduce intracranial compression.

All treatment is safe, effective, doesn’t cause pain and is without the adverse side effects of medication and invasive surgery.

Dr. Lynch is the best chiropractor I've ever been to. His gentle technique has helped me with my migraines and chronic pain issues more over the past few months than all of the other doctors that I've seen over the years put together! Dr. Lynch and his staff are wonderful!

Dr. Lynch and his staff have been great to work with for several years. My vertebrae adjustments are gentle and have allowed me the freedom to continue the activities I love. In addition, he listens to his patients and has a holistic approach to one's health.

I cannot say enough about the help I’ve been provided by Dr. Lynch, Terry, and Lisa. I started my journey with them struggling with constant vertigo/vestibular problems, achiness, fatigue, brain fog, sensitivity to light and sound, inflammation, anxiety, back and hip pain…some of these struggles I’ve had for 20+ years. I thought I had to live that way, but sought Dr. Lynch with a small glimmer of hope. Dr. Lynch took the time to thoroughly go over my X-rays and explained the visible issues I had, some dating back 25+ years. From the very first adjustment, I felt immediate relief of symptoms I’d had for so long, I didn’t know how life was without them. I woke up the next day and couldn’t believe that nearly all of my symptoms were completely gone! Dr. Lynch pinpointed some health issues I didn’t know were causing problems and has worked consistently (along with Terry), using a detailed plan of action, to help relieve so many of my symptoms by getting to the root problems. He has even helped me sort out some diet issues that were causing inflammation, to get me to feeling my best! They are kind, listen, never rush me, and I am 100% positive that they actually care and WANT me to feel better (not keep me sick)! I will never view healthcare the same after the type of care and empowering knowledge I’ve received at Lynch Chiropractic. I tell everyone I can about them and highly recommend their practice to everyone who is seeking answers, a truly holistic approach, and the most excellent care.

I have been seeing Dr. Lynch for several months for pain in my shoulder and arm. After an initial consultation, he has seen me routinely ever since then and his treatments have considerably eased my pain. I can move my arm and shoulder without discomfort because of his dedication and gentle care. In addition, he is a great teacher, offering advice on exercise and diet. His staff has taught me various ways to help other chronic conditions. They have much to offer anyone who is interested in moving toward a more holistic lifestyle. I highly recommend Dr. Lynch and his caring staff.
