Why a Pillow Can’t Relieve TMJ Pain
TMJ disorder occurs when the bite of the jaw is out of alignment. In this instance, your jaw bone wears on the supporting muscles that allow your jaw to move freely while you chew, laugh, or yawn; which then causes severe pain in the jaw and throughout the body. TMJ sufferers often experience back and neck tension, severe headaches, and inner-ear pain, as well. The unique design of the Better Sleep Pillow is actually marketed toward those who most comfortably sleep on their sides with an arm over their head, and has been said to be uncomfortable to those who sleep on their backs and stomachs, as well as those who toss and turn while sleeping. The memory foam construction may provide more head and neck support; however, the straightening of the spine has little to do with the cause of TMJ pain and is not a valid treatment option.
