- Personalized Diagnosis: We understand that TMJ pain is not a one-size-fits-all condition. Our comprehensive evaluations and in-depth understanding of the different types of TMJ pain allow us to provide a personalized diagnosis tailored to your specific needs.
- Targeted Treatment: Armed with the knowledge about your unique TMJ pain, we develop a targeted treatment plan that addresses the root cause of your discomfort. Our evidence-based techniques and chiropractic expertise ensure effective and lasting relief.
- Empowerment through Education: Our focus is on empowering you with knowledge. We take the time to educate you about your TMJ pain, helping you to understand its underlying causes and equipping you with the tools to manage and prevent future episodes.
- Comprehensive Care: Our commitment to your well-being goes beyond just treating your TMJ pain. We take a holistic approach, addressing associated factors such as posture, stress, and lifestyle habits that may contribute to your symptoms. By addressing these underlying factors, we aim to improve your overall health and quality of life.

Dr Taylor: Your guide to unlocking your TMJ pain
“There I stood in a room full of dentists. If one of my nightmares were to come true, this might be it. It’s not that I don’t like dentists. Every dentist I have ever met has been super nice. I’ve just never liked going to the dentist.
“Today I wasn’t standing in front of this group of dentists as a patient, but as the speaker. The president of the local dental association invited me to speak on a topic of my choosing. I chose TMJ pain, because it is at the intersection between chiropractic—my area of expertise—and dentistry. I had always had success treating TMJ pain, but this success made me feel uneasy.
“In my line of work, even the experts don’t get it right every time. But my success rate for treating TMJ complaints was higher than many other conditions. I assumed I was only getting the easy cases, and dentists were seeing all the hard cases.
“My talk tonight to this group of dentists proved me wrong.
“What I learned from this group was that very few of the dentists present, less than 10%, treat TMJ pain. Of those that did, Botox and bite guards were the standard of care. Many didn’t ask their patients if they have TMJ pain. Almost all admitted to not having a good understanding of how the TMJ works.
“I learned that I wasn’t getting the easy cases and the dentists were solving the hard cases. I learned that with a proper diagnosis the vast majority of patients with TMJ pain will get better without more expensive or invasive treatments.
“And I learned that there are hundreds of people in Alexandria suffering with TMJ pain without anywhere to go for treatment. Now, many dentists in town refer their TMJ pain cases to our office. I hope that we can help you too.”
TMJ pain affects your basic necessities: sleeping, eating, and communicating. You can’t skip meals or avoid yawning. The cycle is relentless, especially when the pain and stress disrupt your sleep and cause unconscious teeth clenching. It’s time to break free from this vicious cycle.

Let’s explore some common objections together, so you can make an informed decision about your health and well-being.
My dentist referred me to a chiropractor for my TMJ pain. I don't want to go. I don't believe in chiropractic.
We completely understand your concerns, and we appreciate your honesty. It's important to remember that your dentist referred you to us because he or she genuinely wants what's best for your TMJ pain. While dentists are experts in oral health, chiropractors specialize in joint function and musculoskeletal issues. Our approach to treating TMJ problems is specifically designed to address the underlying causes and restore proper joint function. Through our expertise and experience, we have successfully helped numerous patients find relief from TMJ pain. We would be more than happy to answer any questions or address any doubts you may have, and we're here to support you on your journey to a pain-free life.
We want to assure you that our focus is not on lengthy and unnecessary treatments. In fact, our approach is designed to optimize your recovery time so that you can spend more time living and less time in recovery.

Our aim is to empower you with the knowledge and tools to manage your condition at home, accelerating your recovery process.
We completely respect your preferences and understand that the idea of neck manipulation may not be appealing to you. It's important to note that most TMJ complaints can improve without treating the neck directly. Our treatment plans are always tailored to your specific needs and problem. We will work closely with you to develop a plan that aligns with your comfort level and desired outcomes.
Rest assured that our main focus is on addressing the root causes of your TMJ pain, and we have various treatment techniques at our disposal to achieve this without needing to manipulate your neck. Your well-being and comfort are our top priorities.

Our skilled professionals will ensure a comfortable and relaxing experience as we work towards resolving your TMJ pain.
I've tried various treatments before, and nothing has worked. Why would chiropractic care be any different?
Chiropractic care offers a unique approach that may bring the difference you've been seeking. It's worth considering that if you haven't tried chiropractic care specifically for your TMJ problem, it presents a new opportunity for potential relief. As the saying goes, "It's always in the last place you look." Our expertise in root cause chiropractic care, combined with our comprehensive evaluation and personalized treatment approach, may uncover the underlying factors contributing to your TMJ pain and provide you with a fresh perspective on finding effective solutions.
Our team is here to assist you in navigating these concerns. We accept most major insurance plans and can provide guidance on coverage and any potential out-of-pocket expenses. We believe that everyone deserves access to quality care, and we strive to make our services as affordable as possible. Our focus is on delivering effective treatment and achieving lasting results for our patients.
Our appointments are designed with your busy schedule in mind, typically lasting only 20 minutes. Our focus is on providing high-quality care while minimizing the impact on your daily routine.
