Find Relief from TMD Headaches in the Black Hills
Do you experience frequent, chronic headaches? Does it hurt or feel uncomfortable when you move your jaw? Do you sometimes experience a stuffy feeling in your ears, or have difficulty chewing? If yes, you may be suffering from a TMJ disorder or TMD.
What is a TMD?
Your temporomandibular joints, or TMJ, are the joints that connect your lower jawbone to your skull. When you overuse these joints, it can cause a temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. TMDs are very painful and hard to live with. They affect the quality of your bite, and can cause frequent, chronic headaches and jaw pain. Patients with TMDs often have difficulty focusing on their day to day lives, and find it hard to live comfortably.
