TMD/TMJ and Migraines

Migraines and headaches are more commonly triggered by head and neck pains such as those associated with TMD. If a trigger is un-treated, the pain may become chronic, and centralized within the nervous system and thus more difficult to treat.

Many medications and endorphins help to control the activity in this area. Therefore, many patients with TMJ problems, migraine or tension type headaches have significant relief from their headaches when jaw pain or other head or neck pain is reduced. It is our philosophy to limit the amount of input in this area to ultimately help patients with their pain management.
