Do you suffer a lot with headaches or migraines or with neck and shoulder pain? If so, we may be able to help you put an end to them.
These problems are among symptoms reported by people whose jaw joint is misaligned. The joint, which is also known as the temporo-manidibular joint or TMJ for short, connects our lower jaw and skull. It allows you to open and close your mouth, and to chew.
TMJ disorders are most commonly caused by having an incorrect bite – in other words your teeth do not come together properly, which means the ligaments and muscles around the TMJ are under strain.
The list of symptoms which this can cause is surprisingly long, and includes waking up with a stiff or tender jaw, pain or discomfort at the side of the face by the ears, clicking and popping of the jaw joints and pain behind the eyes, headaches, and neck and shoulder pain.
If you think you might have a TMJ-related problem, please let us know and we can arrange a consultation with you.
