Headaches and muscle pain may have become the norm if you suffer from TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder). Imagine finding relief from the symptoms that taint your daily responsibilities and activities. Dr. Alexander Della Bella offers treatment for the effects of TMJ disorder, allowing you to feel comfortable again.
What is TMJ Disorder?
TMJ disorder occurs when the joints on both sides of your head become stressed. These temporomandibular joints are used multiple times a day when we eat and speak and they can become stressed as a result of clenching or grinding the teeth, an injury to the neck, jaw, or head. Tightening the facial and jaw muscles because of stress can even lead to TMD. If you have noticed some or all of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from TMD:
- Recurring headaches or migraines
- Pain in face, neck, and shoulders muscles
- Pain caused by chewing
- Soreness of the jaw
- Tinnitus (ringing of the ears)
- Difficulty sleeping
