Do you ever wake up with a headache or jaw pain? If you do, you’re not alone. In fact, many Calgarians suffer from morning headaches and jaw pain. The good news is that chiropractic can help!
How Does Chiropractic Help with Jaw Pain?
There are many reasons why people suffer from morning headaches and jaw pain. One of the most common reasons is due to TMJD, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. TMJD is a condition that affects the joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull. When these joints are not in alignment, it can cause pain in the jaw, neck, and head. This creates a lot of stress and tension not only in jaw, but potentially in the skull and upper neck.
Vise versa, misalignments in the neck can put a strain on the muscles of the neck and jaw and pull the jaw out of proper alignment.
Chiropractic can help align the bones in your jaw and upper neck so that they are in proper alignment. This will take the pressure off of the muscles and nerves in your jaw, neck, and head, and can help relieve the pain that you are experiencing. In addition, chiropractic can also help to release the tension that may be build up in your muscles due to stress or poor posture.
If you are suffering from morning headaches or jaw pain, consider seeing a chiropractor. Chiropractic care can help to align your bones and release the tension in your muscles, which can lead to relief from your pain.
