Yes, really! The muscles of your jaw attach to your head/cranium, so when they get tight from such things like poor posture or stress they can add extra pressure to your cranial system, producing problems like a headache (or, yes, even jaw pain!)
Instead of reaching for the Tylenol, get to the root of the problem! Seeing a Physical Therapist who is trained in treating the jaw (TMJ) can be what you’re missing. And someone who is trained in both treating the jaw and cranial system may be the difference for you to not miss another day of being in the sunshine, walking your dog or playing with your sweet grand baby!
Wow Facts: Tension in the jaw can cause…
- Headaches, including migraines
- Clicking/popping of jaw
- Chronic sinus pressure
- Ringing in the ears (aka Tinnitus)
- Pain/difficulty chewing
- Jaw clicking/popping/grinding
- Stiffness/soreness in neck
- Specialized Physical Therapy treatment improves symptoms 80% of the time!
