Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.
I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line in the Beacon Hill Plaza. I am also a Certified Posture Expert and a Certified Postural Neurologist with the American Posture Institute, and a canfitpro certified Personal Training Specialist.
Today I am going to share another case history with you. Case histories are an excellent way to learn about your posture system and chiropractic care both.
I recently consulted with a lady who had a whiplash
car accident injury to her neck and she was also wondering if the whiplash was also causing her terrible jaw pain. She had never ever had jaw pain before until her car accident.
So, today we are going to learn if there is a connection between jaw pain and whiplash.
And the answer is a most definite yes!
Studies have shown that injuries to the head and neck (posture Quadrant #1) such as a whiplash trauma can also traumatize the muscles around the jaw joint as well as the jaw joint itself.
Either one of these can cause pain in the jaw. But they can also cause ear pain, tooth pain, piercing headaches, inability to open the mouth fully, clicking of the jaw when chewing, dizziness, ringing in the ear and misalignment of the jaw where the top teeth do not sit properly on the bottom teeth.
It has been my clinical experience that many patients who suffer from jaw pain or TMJ syndrome get great results with chiropractic care.
So, if you have had a car accident, a slip or a fall, or a sports injury and you have unexplainable jaw pain, I can help.
Your first step is to schedule an appointment for your free initial consultation which also includes a detailed posture scan.
