TMJ Chiropractor in Canberra?

By sportsmum - 1 September 2012 26

I have recently been diagnosed with TMJ and I’ve been told that a chiropractor might be able to help.

Does anyone have a good (or bad) experience to report, and has anyone had success in treating TMJ with chiropractic?

What’s Your opinion?

Try HOPE Family Health and Sports Clinic in Gungahlin.

Most amazing chiropractor that I have come across. Always try to make sure that they can get you an appointment and give you a call straight away if there has been a cancellation and can get you in earlier.

Really lovely experience and leave feeling so much better.

I learn so much on this site, since the moderator introduced me to Goggle.

Good luck OP, that sounds very painful.

Using Google is not the problem it’s the implied dumbness if you don’t know what the acronym means that is offensive.

You really should learn about self-deprecating humour. This is mind-boogoling. That’s if you think Google is an acronym.

If you meant OP, which is an acronym, I have no idea what you mean at all.

Something to do with the muscles of mastication, according to a Google search. All is now explained.

Oh,a mastication problem,I see

Don’t know about chiropracters, but I can probably recommend a couple of iridologists and faith healers.

Capital Clinic Physiotherapy on London Circuit specialize in TMJ. I haven’t been there (and realise they are not chiropractors) but have heard nothing but good things about their other services so they might be worth a try. I feel your pain, I suffer from it too but just go straight for the high potency pain killers and anti-inflammatories 🙂

Second this, and I have been there. Go for this particular physio, and if not, go for some random physio over any chiro. Unless you want to laugh at the video first-timers to Ben’s joint get to see. Along with advice along the lines of how your extreme neck pain might reflect your blood type or a gluten-heavy diet.

Chiropractic is a triumph of marketing over substance. Stick with a health practitioner whose practice is grounded in science and evidence. A physio is a great start. Or, just throwing it out there, maybe even a doctor?

Michael Burdeau at Tuggeranong Chiropractic in Fadden is great.

I’m sure you can google the number

Try Shane Collins at Gungahlin General Practice. Hinder St Gungahlin. 6241 0888. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Shane is very no nonsense and will tell you straight out if he thinks he can’t help you.

don’t know about treating TMJ but a good chiropractor is Ben at http://www.canberrachiropractic.com.au/ , it would be worth a chat to see if they have treated any one with the condition.
