TMJ Neck & Shoulder Pain
A pain in the neck in more ways than one
Are you are suffering from an aching neck or shoulder pain that just won’t seem to go away? Have you tried all kinds of treatments – massage or physiotherapy for example – with no relief?
If this sounds like you, you may be suffering from a condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Some of the most common symptoms of a Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder are tightness in your neck muscles, stiff shoulders or soreness in your back.

In order for your body to function properly, all of your muscles, bones, joints and ligaments must work together in harmony. When one piece of the puzzle does not function as expected, the others must work harder to keep the balance. With a TMJ disorder, your jaw is the culprit.
If you are suffering from jaw, neck, or shoulder pain that keeps reoccurring, seek a qualified dentist in Calgary for advice about your treatment options. They will access the relationship between your teeth, your bite and your jaw to determine whether your bite is misaligned or if there is some other dental reason why your jaw muscles and jaw joints cannot find a mutually comfortable position.
