"I highly recommend Dr. Amy Kerr as she is one of the nicest, friendliest, helpful and caring doctors that I've met in Florida. I recently moved from practicing in Torrance, California to Palm Beach Gardens and am opening up a new practice. Dr. Kerr took the time out of her very busy schedule to answer a few questions I had about practicing in Palm Beach Gardens. I look forward to visiting her clinic and potentially emulating some of the practices she incorporates at her office. Thanks for being such a great help to me, Dr. Kerr!"

The temporomandibular joint is similar to a hinge connecting your skull to your jawbone

There are one of these joints on both sides of your face and jaw. When the muscles controlling this movement cause pain in your jaw joint, it’s called a TMJ disorder.

There are several symptoms including tenderness or pain in your jaw or in this joint specifically. Some patients report an ache around their ear in addition to problems and difficulty while chewing. Facial pain is another symptom. Sometimes the joint itself actually locks up or clicks.

Patients can come and see a chiropractic doctor when they have tenderness around the jaw or persistent pain. Another telltale sign indicating you need to see one of these professionals is when you cannot close or open your jaw at all.

Effective TMJ treatment in North Fort Myers consists of chiropractic practices which can lessen symptoms like ear pain and headaches. These methods are preferred because patients don’t need to resort to drugs or wear mouthguards or splinters.

Best of all, there is no risky surgery involved with this type of TMJ therapy in North Fort Myers. Get in touch with us today to learn more.
