Many people live with daily chronic headaches or migraines. They often think this is their “norm”, but it doesn’t have to be. Most headaches are muscular in origin and often this muscular fatigue and pain may be linked to a condition called TMJD.
The TMJ is the joint at which your bottom jaw is attached to your skull. It is a very complex joint and is functioning constantly, every time you speak, swallow, chew, etc. You shouldn’t hear clicking or popping in your joint..it should be silent. Clicking, popping or getting stuck are signs of a problem with your TMJ.
Figuring out the root cause of your issue is key to the success of treatment. This is why Dr. Perry of Perry Dental Health San Antonio, our TMJ and headache expert, has developed a comprehensive protocol to the diagnosis of TMJ and headache pain, including sleep analysis, digital bite studies, and range of motion studies. Our in-office physical therapist and massage therapist assist in the identification of issues and their treatment. There is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment. Every patient receives a customized therapeutic approach.
