Long Lasting TMJ Pain Relief at The Headache Center of Chicago
If dental force imbalances exist in the teeth or jaw joints, TMJ pain can persist until bite force harmony is somehow restored. Truth is, most people were not born with perfectly straight teeth. It’s really no surprise that so many people experience painful TMJ/TMD symptoms or jaw discomforts and need TMJ pain relief.
The human body strives for balance and harmony in all things. As it pertains to the Temporomandibular Joints, your body wants to achieve balance and harmony of the bite forces — both left and right. When the bite forces are not in balance, the key to relieving any TMJ pain or various symptoms associated with jaw discomfort is to restore a proper 50/50 balance from left to right. It has to start there. The painful and annoying symptoms we refer to include, but are not limited to popping or clicking within the jaw joints, as well as pain when opening, closing, or chewing. TMJ pain can alter personal habits, and even force people to restrict what they eat.
At the Headache Center of Chicago we have the ability to restore harmony to the bite forces and mitigate the TMJ pain and jaw discomfort you may be experiencing with our breakthrough TMJ Therapies. In fact, there are several ways we can solve TMJ pain conditions once you’ve been properly diagnosed for your specific TMJ pain manifestations. Here at the Center, TMJ pain relief is not only possible but our advanced technologies for TMJ Treatment could even get you free from your TMJ pain permanently.
Do You Suffer with Face Pain? Could it be Linked to TMD/TMJ or Other Problems?
The answer is yes, face pain can most definitely be related to TMJ/TMD or other neuromuscular conditions and it is possible you would not even know it. However, it is equally possible that any face pain you may experience is not related to the TMJ joints. For instance, in many cases it is determined that previous dental work — badly executed, no less — is the culprit.
Back to the TMJs. It is certainly possible that your TMJ joints are problematic and triggering other pain symptoms in the nerves and muscles of your face, head and neck. It is even possible that those symptoms would manifest as migraines or frequent headaches, chronic head and neck tension or soreness of the muscles, or sharp pains and tingling sensations.
Because the root causes of face pain can vary widely from one sufferer to another it is absolutely critical that you receive a proper face pain diagnosis. Lasting face pain relief is possible once the real root cause of your face pain is exposed. The correct treatment protocols for your unique condition will be employed by the Headache Center of Chicago based on this diagnosis.
