 TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Treatment) Approximately 40 percent of all healthy individuals suffer from chronic headaches, and one out of eight people suffer from headaches so severe that they cannot function normally. Often, these problems are related to a common cause of chronic pain: TMJ Syndrome. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. This is the joint in the jaw that allows the jaw to open, close, move backward and forward, and from side to side. The term "TMJ Syndrome" refers to a malpositioning of the respective jaw structures and associated muscles. This condition results in muscle contractions, which are a factor in approximately 80% of all tension-related headaches. The first step is to recognize the possible problems caused by TMJ. For instance, if you have any combination of the following complaints, you may be suffering from TMJ Syndrome: headache dizziness and/or lightheadedness ringing, buzzing, or clogged ears spasm and/or tightening in the back of the neck, shoulders, or face clicking or popping noises when opening or closing the jaw inability to open the mouth fully locking of the jaw joint pain behind the eyes earaches sinus pain.
