Are Your Chronic Headaches Actually TMD Headaches?
Everyone gets the occasional headache; however, when they become chronic, an underlying problem may be the cause. If you’re enduring consistent bouts with headaches or migraines, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) could be the reason why.
What Causes Severe Headaches & Migraines
Migraines can be caused by a variety of things, and when you add in severe headaches to the mix, the list of migraine causes can be quite lengthy. Many of the causes have their roots in the muscles and blood vessels in the head and neck.
Often, Philadelphia patients believe they are suffering from migraines, when they are actually experiencing symptoms associated with TMJ disorder. In turn, they attempt to relieve their symptoms by taking medications that only mask the pain. When migraine-like headaches stem from TMJ disorder, patients require a treatment that works by correcting the root cause of the problem: a bad or misaligned bite. Dr. Siegel offers relief for patients who suffer from TMJ-related migraines in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas by providing treatments that go beyond mere symptoms and address the actual source of the problem within the temporomandibular joint.
