Hi, I’m Dr. Jonathon Pinnow, your chiropractor for TMJ with Noble Choice Chiropractic in Sun Prairie WI. And I’m hoping you saw the earlier video on how chiropractic helps with TMJD because in this one, we’re gonna talk specifically about how Noble Choice Chiropractic helps to eliminate your TMJD.
And I’m really excited about it because when we see patients in the office, they tell me they just had a burger for the first time in three years at a barbecue. They’re able to open their mouth to eat that. That’s the kind of stuff that gets me fired up, gets me going.
And so I think that if you’re coming into our office, you’re coming to the best place to fix your TMJD, to get rid of it. And so according to the American dental research, they recommend that a diagnosis of TMJD be based not only on a history of your head, which is the TMJ joint and all the muscles, but also your neck, so the cervical spine and all of the muscle in that neck.

And so that’s exactly what we do when you come into our office, is we go through a history and we get to know you before we go into any of your symptoms. And then once we start to get to know you, we go through the whole history. We figure out exactly what’s going on.
And then we take measurements of your jaw. You see, we take measurements of your jaw moving, and we are so precise. We’re down to a hundredth of the millimeter on how your jaw is moving.
Based on these measurements, then we know what we can do for recommendations going forward. But we also then look at the neck, and we take digital x-rays onsite. And we look at those x-rays, not just again, in one position, but we do it with you moving your head because your body’s dynamic. We want to see how everything’s moving.
And then based on those x-rays, wherever that spine is not moving, where it’s not functioning how it’s supposed to, what we call a subluxation as chiropractors, then we know what to fix and how to help you.
So we’ve put together everything through your neck, everything through the head and the jaw, just like the dental research asks, recommends. And we put it all together, and we create a care plan for you.
We know exactly what we’re doing specific to you and your specific TMJD symptoms. And then we get to work. We go to work, correcting the dysfunction, the subluxations in through the neck, all the musculature and through the neck. We do the same thing with the joint, in through the head, that TMJ, and all of the muscles that are around that joint, giving it that stabilization and that function.

And then outside of the office, we’re gonna give you things to do at home. You’re gonna get exercises specific to what’s going on with you. Whatever your history, your symptoms present, you’re gonna get exercise based on that, specific, again to you.
You’re gonna do the work at home. We’re gonna do all the work in here, and together, we’re gonna get you back to where you want to be, where that jaw is not bothering you anymore, where everything’s functioning, how it’s supposed to.
And when we get there at the end of that corrective plan, we’re gonna take all those measurements again of the jaw. We’re gonna take digital X-rays, see how everything’s improved there.
