Jaw and Facial Pain is Common After Auto Accidents
Car collisions do not just pose a threat to your neck and spine. They can also injure your face and jaw. Drivers and passengers alike are vulnerable to these injuries, and there are many varieties of which to be wary. Depending on the nature of your auto accident, you may not immediately notice jaw or facial pain. That does not mean it is not there, but your body’s pain response could be focused on other body parts. There are also instances where pain manifests itself days or weeks after a car crash. Among the types of jaw and facial pain you may experience in an auto accident are:
Your temporomandibular joint connects your jaw to the bones at the front of each ear and operates as a hinge for your mouth. Trauma from a car crash can injure it, resulting in pain, symptoms such as teeth clenching, and other effects.
If you experience whiplash as a result of your head thrusting forward and backward quickly, you may suffer from damage to your temporomandibular joint or an anterior injury, which could displace the articular disc within your TMJ.
Facial fractures are increasingly less frequent because of safety measures and restraints, but they are still a concern in auto accidents. Chiropractic care can do little to repair facial fractures, so you must see a specialist if you suffer such an injury.
Chiropractic Care Can Remedy Jaw and Facial Pain
Individuals who suffer from TMJ or whiplash trauma can find relief from chiropractic care. Your spine may be misaligned or your nerves may be damaged, either of which intensifies the pain you feel. Our chiropractors have spent years training to diagnose and treat such issues. Our proven techniques can relax your muscles, realign your spine, and even target trigger points in your jaw to accurately reposition it. Regardless of the cause of your jaw or facial pain, we will correctly diagnose it and devise a customized treatment plan to help you recover.
