Are you among the roughly 10 million people suffering from TMJ disorder in the US? Do you often question why this relentless jaw pain won't give you a break? Are you tired of feeling that pain and discomfort in your face and jaw day after day?
TMJ, also known as a temporomandibular joint disorder, turns your life into a whirlwind of discomfort and frustration and makes eating and talking uncomfortable. Unfortunately, TMJ doesn't stop at jaw pain. Instead, it affects the surrounding muscles. It can also cause you to experience facial discomfort, struggle to open or close your mouth, and hear clicking or popping sounds when chewing or talking. Did you ever reach a point where apart from your usual jaw pain, you experience headaches and earaches?
So what makes TMJ in Fairborn OH worse? What can you do to relieve your pain effectively? Is there a non-invasive way to deal with your condition? Let's find out!
If your TMJ issues persist despite your efforts to find relief, the problem may be linked to your neck area—particularly a misalignment in your upper cervical spine. TMJ issues and neck issues may be more intertwined than you know. The Upper Cervical region, where your atlas and axis bones are located, can affect the alignment of your jaw, especially when these bones shift out of their alignment. Any alteration in the alignment of the atlas and axis bones can directly impact the function of your trigeminal nerve, potentially leading to changes in the TMJ and even affecting your bite.
Understanding this connection opens up possibilities for finding effective relief from TMJ discomfort. By addressing the alignment and health of your Upper Cervical spine, you can address the root causes of TMJ problems and improve overall jaw function.
Misalignments in the topmost neck bones can stem from accidents, trauma, poor posture, or repetitive stress. Our team at Living Well Spine Center has been helping patients deal with issues linked to a misalignment in the atlas and axis bones. We will support you on your journey towards improved TMJ health.
