Landon shares in this video how he has been dealing with jaw pain, pressure behind his eyes and at the base of his neck 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 and is one of the more complex joints in the body. Severe TMJ disorders are often very difficult to treat.
TMJ, jaw pain, or limited range of motion of the jaw can be cause by injury, dental procedures, grinding or clenching of teeth during sleep, infections, or autoimmune disease. The nerves that control the jaw and surrounding muscles come through spinal levels C1 and C2. When there is subluxation or mis-alignment of the upper cervical spine from physical, chemical, or emotional stress to the body, symptoms may include jaw pain, limited range of motion, headaches and migraines, itchy or watery eyes, feeling of pressure in the head among other symptoms.
