Headache, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) discomfort


The habit of grinding, gnashing, grating, or clenching the teeth is called bruxism, and millions of adults and children are affected by this condition. I know bruxism well, providing therapy to alleviate and normalize the muscles of the jaw for my clients and with my own personal experience with it.

Bruxism can occur as a response to increased psychological stress to the body or being distorted with a chronic forward head posture. Many people may not even be aware that they have this condition because they grind their teeth at night while asleep but it also can occur during day as well.
