“I initially scheduled my consultation last week with Dr. Ward to address some neck pain. However, during my initial assessment I told her about my chronic TMJ pain, not even realizing that chiropractic care could even make a difference or do anything about my jaw. My TMJ and jaw pain has been so much a part of my "normal" life that I had given up on anything other than surgery being able to help with the discomfort.
After just four adjustments so far I can already tell you I feel a HUGE difference. My range of motion in my jaw has significantly improved. My headaches and tension have almost completely gone away. Dr. Ward has given me some muscle stretches and techniques to do at home when I am experiencing discomfort and it has been the only thing I have tried in the past 10 years that has made any difference at all. I yawned twice this week with no pain. While that might not mean anything to you, it means so much to me! In the past, every time I would yawn, my jaw would either lock up or dislocate and it would be excruciating painful. I actually never realized until now how much anxiety and tension I would get in my body when I would feel a yawn coming on. It wasn't until I experienced my first pain free yawn in 10 years this week that I realized just how much stress I had been putting on my body.
Thank you Dr. Ward! I am so thankful. I am now on the right track to taking back my life and putting myself, health and well-being first. ”
