If you suffer from chronic, recurring headaches, you are not alone. It is estimated that more than 45 million Americans get them. While nearly two-thirds suffer from migraines, other types of headaches also pose a significant problem. At [practice_name], we work with patients to solve headache problems stemming from all kinds of sources.
The most common type of headache is known as a tension headache. These are often chronic and can recur daily. They appear in both adults and adolescents. Tension headaches result from muscle contraction, and while not as severe as something like a migraine, they still cause significant pain and frustration.
Muscles can become tense for a variety of reasons. An evaluation by Drs. [doctor_name] can help determine the cause. One source of tension could be a TMJ disorder, including jaw joints, misaligned bite, or spasms in facial muscles. In the case of these disorders, women are the most common sufferers, although any person of any age can be affected. If a TMJ disorder is determined to be the cause, it can be treated with a custom orthotic device. We may also recommend a variety of physical medicine modalities, exercises for the jaw, or nutrition counseling.
If you are tired of what feel like constant headaches, TMJ therapy may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Please call our [city], [st], office today to learn more about your options and to schedule an appointment with Drs. [doctor_name].
