Many who suffer from chronic headaches and migraines also experience debilitating neck pain. While there are many medications to treat the symptoms of headaches, neck pain relief is often much harder to find. Neck pain associated with headaches is relatively common, particularly for those whose headaches are the result of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), a bad bite, or any number of improperly functioning “dental forces.” The hyperactive muscle forces that accompany an unbalanced bite relationship also extend through the neck and cervical musculature. All of these muscles are interrelated in their function to move and stabilize the lower jaw. Stabilizing the bite, calming the muscles and developing a physiologically balanced relationship leads to the calming of these tight muscles.
