People that suffer from shoulder, back and neck pain, and persisting headaches will often pass off or live with these symptoms not knowing the root of the problem. It is possible the symptoms could be related to a larger dental issue – TMD.
What is TMD
TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction) affects the temporomandibular joint which is found at the front of the ear. When this joint is not functioning properly it can cause a wide range of issues in the body. TMD is often instigated by a malocclusion, this comes in the form of overbites, under bites or cross bites.
Symptoms of TMD can include:
- Dizzy spells
- Back, shoulder, neck pain
- Persisting headaches or migraines
- Facial or jaw pain
