Testimonials
“When I started coming to see Dr. Bodnar, I was in a great deal of pain and could barely walk. Three years later, I visit him maybe every 5-6 weeks. Thanks to Dr. Bodnar and his team, I am feeling so much stronger and healthier. Thank you so much!”

Carrie, Sackville.

Having pain in the jaw makes eating -- one of life's most routine but enjoyable experiences -- a lot less pleasant. 

Jaw problems typically originate either in the joint or in the muscles. Joint problems, technically called Temporal Mandibular joint Dysfunction (TMD), or muscle problems can stem from an injury, poor tooth and bite alignment or even chronic stress/tension.

  •  Symptoms can include headaches, jaw pain and difficulty chewing
  •  Pain can be on both sides or just one
  • Treatment may also require dental management to address bite alignment
  • Jaw problems can be managed with mobilization, soft tissue therapy, massage

Treatments

Treatment always needs to start with an appropriate diagnosis.

Treatments should focus on the underlying cause of the pain - both the tissue causing the pain as well as the factors that are triggering the problem.  A combination of treatments, such as, massage, soft tissue treatments (Graston), manipulation/mobilization and/or home stretching exercises can be effective ways to reduce the tissue irritation.

We identify any aggravating factors and help you to manage any issues through a program of self-care and prevention.


For a clinical assessment of your lower back pain, the triggers and best treatment options, please contact Bedford Chiropractic for an appointment.
