TMJ Disorder: The Hidden Root Cause Of Migraines And Jaw Pain

“How do I make the pain stop?” Millions of people in the United States suffering from neck, shoulder, and jaw pain ask this question to their physicians receiving unsatisfactory results. Did you know that the answer may rest in the hands of your TMJ specialist dentist in Chandler? Read on to learn what TMJ disorder is and how to free your life from the pain.


The TMJ is the joint that attaches the jaw to the skull, which, when not properly aligned, causes symptoms like:

Migraine headaches
• Clicking or popping of the jaw
• Pain when eating or talking
• Stiff jaw
• Dizziness or vertigo
• Muscle pain in the face, neck or shoulders
• Ringing in the ears
• Tingling in the hands


Since TMJ disorder is a chronic degenerative disease that usually develops over years of improper bite alignment and stress, the most effective way of treating it and eliminating the root cause of your pain is by modifying your bite alignment. Watch the following video to learn how Dr. Walker’s expertise in neuromuscular dentistry can help.
