13 Apr Migraine Relief
Looking for a solution to your migraine that won’t involve pills or injections? Here is groundbreaking information on what might cause migraines and headaches, so that you can finally get the effective relief you seek.
Migraine headaches can be the symptomatic of temporomandibular joint dysfunction or TMD. We know this because headaches are typically what people with TMJ problems say they suffer from; examples of TMJ issues are ringing in the ears or pain in the jaw, head, and neck. Most headaches result from the tension in the face & neck muscles caused by disposition of the jaw joint.
Thankfully, there are treatments for the pulsating headaches called migraines. The most common option is taking medications to block the pain. Other methods include nerve-decompression therapy, muscle therapy, and psychological therapy.
However these techniques do not get to the root of the problem and the damage from malocclusion, the irregular positioning of the teeth when the jaw is shut, continues. Also, medications can have side effects, surgeries can involve complications, and therapies may have limited results that don’t solve the issue at its core.
A dentist who specializes in TMJ disorder treatment may be the answer for you. The process involves placing the jaw in the proper position to relieve symptoms that go with TMJ disorders – disposition of the jaw joint.
The muscles feel relief as they no longer have to try to position the teeth into a strained bite. Unlike a regular dental visit that focuses on the teeth, gums, and bones, our team at Dental Wellness Group concentrates on the muscles, nerves, hard tissues, and soft tissues. These latter four areas are all affected by a misaligned jaw.
Our goal is to bring the bite into neuromuscular alignment, simultaneously realigning the jaw, head, and neck with it. When the muscles have normal tension, then head posture is optimal. Chewing muscles relate to the jaw’s movement, as do chewing patterns and the posture of the head and neck. So, when the jaw receives improvement then so does the muscles, head, and neck. They are all deeply connected and affect one another.
Methods to alleviate TMJ dysfunction, migraine headaches and discomfort in the head and neck must consider this active relationship between dental constriction, jaw position, and head and neck posture.
