TMJ and Back Pain

TMJ Disorder Could be Causing Your Back Pain

Do you have a sore back that you can’t really explain the reasons for? If you’re in the Grand Prairie, TX area with unexplained back pain, you should consider a TMJ disorder consultation from Dr. Carlos G. Wiesse at Beautiful Lake Ridge Smiles. Jaw alignment problems can cause many side effects in the body, including back pain. Some people with TMJ disorder have no idea that it’s causing pain in their back, neck, shoulders, and causing headaches, too.

How TMJ Disorder Causes Back Pain?

TMJ is often known for causing jaw pain, a clicking in the jaw, and radiating ear pain. But it’s also increasingly getting attention for causing back pain, headaches, and pain in the neck and shoulders. Your jaw gets a lot of use in a day (eating, speaking, etc.) and when you consider the fact that it’s connected to other systems in your body it’s easy to see why when there are problems with alignment, it can throw your whole body off kilter.

Treatment for TMJ Disorder

While most people wouldn’t expect their oral health care professional to help them with back problems, a dentist who is well-versed in TMD treatments can be the answer to your back woes. Dr. Carlos G. Wiesse is well-versed in treatments for dealing with jaw alignment issues and after a consultation can help you determine the best way forward, including dental work, night guards, and other TMJ treatment options.

Dr. Wiesse’s office is well-reviewed for excellent results and a caring environment.
