Acupuncture and Chiropractic Care?
Rose Asked: Acupuncture and Chiropractic Care?
So, I have chronic TMD which has been effecting my ear every day since August 14th. Its not an ear infection because I was checked by my doctor and ENT specialist for infections and even given ear drops and medicine just in case, which never helped. I am pretty convinced it is from TMD now as my jaw has become a stress inflicted area in my life. However, treatment for TMD isn't very advanced yet, so all I have is a mouthguard to help and all that does is prevent me from grinding my teeth down. It doesn't help relieve my jaw tension. I have heard chiropractic care can really improve the symptoms of TMD and have heard of ear improvements with Acupuncture but, I would like to hear from more people who have experienced improvements personally or know someone who has. I've never been to a chiropractor or someone who specializes in acupuncture so I'm not sure what to expect and just would like some piece of mind from people who know what they are talking about.
Please make sure your answer is at least a sentence long and mature because I have been getting some rude one word answers lately that I consider spam. I am taking this seriously, otherwise I would not be asking so please answer me seriously and helpfully because its frustrating to just sit around and wonder about your health with no real solutions.
Thanks so much for your time and answers!
I've been told that I have problems with my TMJ since I was a kid, I have seen all kinds of body workers,chiropractors, massage therapists, cranial sacral workers from Upledgers etc – and about the only thing that helped at all was Botox which was actually given to me for an entirely different reason.
However, an ear issue that has only been bothering you for a few months is far – FAR – from chronic, and I would explore other options before you start looking at "the fringes" or even consider yourself "desperate".
I am with Suzy Q on this one.
