Headaches in Austin
We’ve all had a headache before. They can be caused by all sorts of factors. From a lack of sleep to excessive stress, headaches are a common occurrence in society today. However, headaches are usually temporary and should not be chronic. If you find that you suffer from headaches on a weekly or perhaps even daily basis and have yet to find a treatment that relieves them completely, your headaches may be caused by TMJ disorder or TMD.
Treating TMJ Headaches At Our Austin Office
Before your headaches can be linked to a problem within your TMJ, Dr. Matthews will have to analyze your bite. If he finds an imbalance or misalignment, it is safe to say that your headaches may be a result of your body’s attempt to realign your jaw joint. As the body tries to reposition the TMJ, tension is created, which can then travel throughout the body. Since the TMJ is directly connected to the head and neck through muscles, tendons, and nerves, it is common that these areas are affected.
