TMJ Treatment

TMJ Treatment with CranioSacral Therapy.
TMJ treatment needs to be approached from a number of aspects.
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder - that’s the joint that opens and closes your jaw) and stress tend to go hand in hand. The association is one of "chicken and egg"...

...but which comes first?

Let’s look at it this way. You have a stressful day which causes your chewing muscles to tighten which in turn upsets the trigeminal nerve in your face...

...sparking the "flight and fight" system in the body...

... Activating the sympathetic nervous system causing the jaw to tense which then tightens the chewing muscles ... and on it goes.

This painful muscle spasm is related to psychological stress. With CranioSacral Therapy we assist the body in breaking this cycle of stress.


I work with clients to get to the root cause of the problem which results in:
·         Relief in headaches and neck pain.
·         Relief in painful muscle spasms.
·         Correction of bite.
·         Stopping of the teeth grinding while you're asleep.

And most importantly allow your body to relax.

Our Craniosacral Therapist is in at Family First Chiropractic on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays. For an appointment call 403-347-3261. www.family1stchiro.ca
