TMJ, Headaches and Facial pain are serious life altering problems. The National Institute of Health (NIH) states that over 10 million people in the US suffer from TMJ problems. Both men and women experience these, but 90% of those seeking treatment are women in their childbearing years. Physiological differences in pain processing explains why women suffer these conditions more than men. So what is the cause of this? We don’t definitively know but literature demonstrates the main causes to be directly correlated with breathing problems (sleep apnea), chronic pain, and physical trauma. Additionally we know that if left untreated TMD problems can lead to chronic headaches, neck pain, and migraines.
