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?

I was skeptical about trying all these things, but having tried them, would recommend to anyone.

Interesting that you went to Dr Da Cruz. I was booked in to see him with the view to getting a splint to assist with teeth grinding and jaw cleching. I ended up cancelling the appt due to work travel and have never got around to re-scheduling. The cost was also much higher than at my previous dentist, (Dr Archibald, who is great), to get a splint made up.

Anyway, how did you find the whole experience with him? Is it any different to an ordinary dentist, (taking into account the fact that he focuses on these things and not just run of the mill teeth cleaning)?

Nothing like a good back crack to help with your cheek and jaw pain.

Actually I heard reiki is even better. Have you tried reiki?

Just in case someone with the same problem comes across this thread and is looking for help with this type of thing, the 3 things that were of greatest benefit to me (and I am much, much better now) were:
Cranio sacral osteopathy (Maxwell Fraval’s clinic)
Physiotherapy

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I’m going to try the physio and massage and see how it goes.

The other downside is that their promises are empty, so you might as well throw your money in the toilet.

I do hope you get some relief and I would strongly recommend you see a physio.

A simple massage will give you all the benefits of chiropractic with none of the risks.

The chief reason people use chiropractors is that they are very very cheap.
They are very very cheap because they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. And they will sometimes rupture your neck artery giving you a stroke.
Keep them well away from your neck. And your back, for that matter.
