Acupuncture for TMJ
Pain is a signal. It is the body’s way of telling us that something is not right. Acupuncture can ease temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, but its special skill is finding and correcting the root cause of pain, the reason for the signal.
What treatment looks like
We treat pain aggressively at first with frequent acupuncture visits then taper down as you find relief. In the long run, some of our patients walk away pain free while others return occasionally for a tune up.
We'll use a combination of tools to help relieve the pain you’re feeling now and address its underlying cause. These include acupuncture, herbal medicine, as well as high impact self-care routines.
We'll ask you document your pain daily in a "pain diary" so that we can get an accurate picture of your experience, change tactics if needed, and watch your pain change.
