What is Migraine Pain?

Migraine pain is a debilitating condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by a throbbing headache that is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. The exact cause of migraines is not fully understood, but it is believed to be related to changes in brain chemicals, genetics, and environmental factors.

One possible link between migraines and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder is muscle tension. The temporomandibular joint connects the jawbone to the skull and allows for movements such as chewing and speaking. When this joint becomes inflamed or damaged, it can lead to TMJ disorder, which can cause pain and discomfort in the jaw, face, and neck.

Muscle tension in the jaw and neck can also lead to migraines. The muscles in these areas are connected, and tension in one area can spread to the other, causing pain and discomfort. Additionally, clenching or grinding the teeth, which are common symptoms of TMJ disorder, can put extra strain on the muscles in the jaw and neck, which can trigger migraines.

They are amazing! They not only treated my jaw pain they also determined I had sleep apnea and sleep issues. I had tried many treatments in the past and they are the only ones that have cured my jaw pain, snoring and migraines.
