Jaw pain and pain in the face is not a common presentations in the clinic however an osteopathic and naturopathic approach may well be able to help alleviate problems in this area. In many respects jaw pain is well suited to naturopathic and osteopathic intervention due to dysfunction in the area often being related to physical and emotional challenges; and patients with this pain often report improved symptom management when a multifaceted approach is taken. Like many joint pains, relief can be achieved via steroid injection but this is not a long term solution and certainly does not deal with to the original cause(s) of the pain. The Plymouth Naturopathic Clinic works closely with local dentists to ensure that your dentition and bite are not part of the cause and also with patients who have recently had dental surgery to encourage correct rehabilitation of the jaw joints.
