TMJ and Neck and Back Pain

TMJ Could be Causing Pain in Your Neck

and Back

Could TMJ be the source of your upper back and neck pain? If you have symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder/syndrome), you may have a clicking jaw, get radiating pain in the jaw and ear, and you might experience other problems like ringing in the ears, too. Did you know that the alignment of your jaw could also be causing pain in connecting areas? TMJ and headaches are connected and the same goes for back pain and neck pain.

Madison Family Dental can help you find out if TMJ is a factor with this pain. Dr. Raj w can help you determine whether or not back pain and neck pain are related to your jaw and they can offer treatment that stops TMJ pain from impacting your life.

Your Jaw’s Alignment

The alignment of the jaw or lack thereof can have a lot of side effects. If your jaw’s alignment is off, there are a variety of TMJ treatment options that could be very helpful. Our team can often recommend jaw exercises as well as mouth guards that are worn at night which help improve the alignment of the jaw. Dental work could also improve your bite, meaning less pain, less clenching, and less TMJ-related neck and back pain. The pain you feel from your jaw could be causing you to tense up and this could impact your back, shoulders, and neck. Eliminating this pain could eliminate that tension!
