Your Back Pain Could be Connected to Poor Jaw Alignment and TMJ Disorder

Some people suffer with back pain for much of their adult life without ever really knowing the true cause. Many try, without success, to treat back pain and no matter what they do, nothing seems to make it better.

An increasing number of people in Madison, Wisconsin are speaking to their dentist about back pain. TMJ disorder could be contributing to back pain as well as other aches and pains in your body.

Jaw Alignment is Very Important

You might be surprised to find out that the clicking in your jaw, headaches, back pain and other body pains are associated with poor jaw alignment. Poor jaw alignment could cause a plethora of health problems, including back pain.

Beyond headaches and soreness in the mouth, that pain can radiate down through your neck and your shoulders, as well as throughout your back.
