TMJ - Jaw Pain Therapy

It has been estimated that more than 50 million people in Canada and the U.S. suffer from severe headaches. These headaches can be so debilitating that they adversely affect their ability to work and their relationships with family and friends. Although there can be several reasons for headaches, many headache patients suffer from temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ disorders).

TMJ is commonly misdiagnosed. Read the list of symptoms below and contact Dr. Elliott if you suspect you are suffering from this problem.

The most common symptoms include:

  • headaches
  • dizziness
  • stiffness in jaw joint
  • ear aches, ringing in the ears
  • teeth do not touch when biting
  • neck pain
  • pain behind the eyes
  • problem swallowing
  • fainting
  • shoulder or back pain
  • tingling or numbness of fingers
  • clicking jaw, inability to open mouth wide, clenching/grinding teeth, worn teeth.
