If you suffer from tinnitus, our team of experts provides the knowledge and treatment you need.
TMJ can be a real pain, both literally and figuratively. Not only can it cause jaw pain and stiffness, but it can also lead to a condition called tinnitus. Tinnitus is a condition that causes a ringing or buzzing sound in the ears. While it can be caused by a number of factors, such as exposure to loud noise or certain medications, one of the less-known causes of tinnitus is TMJ. TMJ, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is a condition that affects the joints that connect the lower jaw to the skull. When these joints become inflamed or irritated, they can cause a clicking or popping sound when the mouth is opened and closed. In some cases, this inflammation can also lead to tinnitus. If you suspect that your tinnitus may be caused by TMJ, it’s important to see a doctor or dentist so that you can get proper treatment. Left untreated, TMJ can lead to worsened symptoms and long-term damage to the joints.

How Do We Treat Tinnitus?
While there is no cure for tinnitus, there are treatments that can help to reduce the symptoms. One such treatment is acupuncture. Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into the skin at specific points. This treatment is thought to stimulate the nervous system and promote healing. Another treatment option for TMJ tinnitus is CranioSacral Therapy (CST). CST is a gentle, hands-on treatment that uses light touch to release restrictions in the cranial bones and soft tissues. This therapy is thought to improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and help to relieve pain and relax muscles. If you’re suffering from TMJ tinnitus, talk to your doctor about these and other treatment options.
