Another possible cause for HEADACHES

The Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the jaw to the skull. As a hinge joint the joint allows sliding and rotation in front of the ear of the jaw with the assistance of interconnecting muscles . When these joints are aligned the action of moving the mouth and chewing is efficient. Unfortunately when these components are misaligned several issues may arise.

Excessive strain may result from the following:

  • Clenching or grinding of the teeth especially during sleep
  • Stress including, physical, mental and emotional
  • Jaw injury especially in sports injuries
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Poor posture
  • Degenerative conditions, including degenerative and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Muscle spasms

TMJ syndrome may include the following symptoms:

  • Jaw pain, stiffness, locking, grinding of the teeth
  • Headaches, including neck pain and stiffness
  • Ear aches, pain radiating across the face over and behind the eye
  • Tinnitus, limitation of mouth movements, with or without clicking
  • Teeth sensitivity and or pain
  • Dizziness

If you or someone or someone you know has any of the above symptoms then a full Chiropractic Spinal and Jaw assessment may help determine possible reasons for ongoing symptoms.
