Many patients experience chronic headaches without understanding what might be causing them. The surprising truth is that, often, frequent headaches—plus neck, shoulder, and back pain—are caused by a problem with your bite, labeled as TMJ syndrome.
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. Every patient has two, and they’re located near the ear, where your upper jaw and your lower jaw meet. These joints make it easy to open and close your mouth for eating, speaking, yawning, etc. Sometimes, though, stress or an improper bite can cause the joints to dysfunction, exposing nerve endings and resulting in your uncomfortable symptoms.
