TMJ: A Pain in the Neck!
What does the jaw have to do with the neck? It’s all related! Pain in the jaw can radiate upwards or downwards, meaning you can find that you have pain in your head that feels like tension headaches or stabbing pains. It can also radiate downwards, resulting in pain in the neck, shoulders, and your upper back. A jaw that’s now well-aligned can throw your whole body off kilter. Stress and tension also tend to aggravate TMJ symptoms. If you have symptoms of TMJ, Baytown neuromuscular dentists can be a huge help.
How Neuromuscular Dentistry Can Help with TMJ and Neck Pain:
Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on the muscles and can help in a number of ways. Your dentist can leverage dental appliances, recommend jaw exercises, could perform dental work to improve jaw alignment, and can leverage pain medication to help as well. Dr. Dean Hutto would be pleased to meet with you to assess your jaw as well as develop a TMJ treatment plan that could eradicate TMJ-related symptoms like neck pain, headaches, jaw pain, etc.
