Pain pills only place a band-aid on a problem that won’t go away on its own.
Steroids given to relieve inflammation do not resolve the problem.
Chiropractors manipulate the tempro-mandibular joint in attempts to regain balance in the area.

Difficult extractions may stretch ligaments in the joint.
Arthritis in the area elicits a painful display as well.
Loss of lubricating fluid also causes pain in this area.
Jaw joint pain can be a combination of multiple disease processes.
Hip and knee replacements in today’s technology driven age, are looked upon as standard operating procedure.

Tempro-mandibular joints are not replaced in the same manner as hip and knee replacements.
Dentists rehabilitate the jaw joint with supplements and quality nutrition.
Using quality nutrition and supplements are miles ahead of surgical techniques any day of the week.
Patients who have suffered for years are glad when given hope something can be done to relieve their symptoms.
Prescriptions written by doctors for these problems can be very addictive if pain relief is the only treatment remedy available to the patient.

Venture into a whole foods grocery store and ask about the various produce that exists with anti-inflammatory properties.

A good starting point for joint inflammation is cold pressed castor oil massaged into the joint with moist heat also applied.
The moist heat not dry heat, helps the oil to penetrate to the source of inflammation.
Points of muscle attachment should also be massaged with the oil for greater success.
Read the instructions for application of the oil with wool flannel as a carrier to hold the oil in position.
Jaw joint pain can be reduced going to the pain source and relieving the inflammation causing the chronic discomfort.
