Headaches, TMJ and Neck Pain – Oh My! 🤯
How to prevent and alleviate head, neck and jaw pain
If you’re one of the millions of Americans who suffer from chronic or ongoing head, neck and jaw pain, you know how the slogan “pain in the neck,” became synonymous with sources of gnawing annoyance.
Headaches, jaw pain, neck and shoulder muscle tension, pain with movement, lack of sleep due to snoring or pain, asthma, hay fever, nasal congestion, anxiety or fatigue – these are just a few of the many ways that problems with the structure of the neck and head can manifest throughout your body.
Did you know that about 40% of annual consumer spending for the treatment of chronic pain is spent on head and neck pain remedies alone?
Affecting 10 percent of all adults over the age of 18, head and neck pain disproportionately affects women 2 to 1, with symptoms of temporomandibular joint dysfunction affecting an estimated 50 to 75 percent of all people with head and neck pain.
Yet, only 3 to 4 percent of those who suffer will seek medical attention for their head and neck pain. And that’s just sad.
