Jaw pain? Tension headaches? Is stress causing you to clench your teeth? Here’s a quick tip to give you some relief!
When your jaw is not in a comfortable, relaxed position, tension can build up in the temporalis muscle, and that tension can be passed on to other muscles in the head. This can lead to widespread tension headaches. TMJ can even contribute to migraines.
The remedy of gently holding a pencil in your teeth, but not biting down on it, can put your jaw in a more relaxed position. This can help reduce the tension in your head and give relief to your jaw tension or headache. This is a quick fix, not a cure, why not give us a call to see if we can help you find a long-term solution?
