Are you experiencing jaw and neck pain or pressure behind the eyes? It could be caused by a TMJ disorder.
In this video, Landon shares how he has been dealing with this issue for 15 years. TMJ, or the temporomandibular joint, is located at the base of the skull and allows movement of the mouth up and down and side to side. It is one of the most complex joints in the body. Severe TMJ disorders can be very difficult to treat, and at Foresight Chiropractic the Board Certified Doctors often work together with dental specialists.
Jaw pain and limited range of motion in the jaw may be caused from nighttime grinding or clenching of the teeth, accidents or trauma, dental procedures, infections or inflammation. The nerves that control the jaw pass through the Atlas (C1) and Axis (C2), the top two bones of the spine. Mis-alignment of the upper cervical spine can cause migraines, headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, and it can even be the reason for low back pain.
The central nervous system controls and coordinates all function in the body. When the spine is mis-aligned, it causes stress on the nervous system and may limit the range of motion in the body. Mis-alignment can also cause digestive or sleep issues, irritability, earaches or colic in children, and a myriad of other health issues when left untreated.
It’s never too early for a spinal checkup to eliminate health issues and as a proactive wellness practice. Prevent long-term chronic issues with early and regular spinal checkups.
