Chiropractic treatments have been well documented to manage jaw pain in a drug-free and effective manner. The initial phase of treatment would focus on restoring proper biomechanical function of the surrounding joints and musculatures. Treatments would usually involve joint manipulation/mobilisation, trigger point therapy, home stretches and kinesiotaping. Once the pain has subsides, the patients would then be gradually exposed to an exercise program aimed at strengthening the region involved.
