If you are experiencing neck pain, it’s important to figure out the cause, though there are many. Neck pain can be caused by a simple need for a new pillow, or it can be a signal of a more serious problem such as an improper balance of your jaw (TMJ disorder). Because of this imbalance, your body will naturally try to correct your bite’s imbalance on its own. Unconsciously you may find that you are holding your head a bit more forward than usual or constantly leaning your head to the side a bit. This is because your body is attempting to put the jaw in a position that helps to correct the imbalance. This unnatural posture leads to strain on the muscles of the back of the neck. Many times this pain comes and goes but never stops completely, even after buying that new pillow or investing in some good massage therapy.
If this is the case, you may suffer from TMJ disorder and will need to consult a neuromuscular dentist who can help find a solution for you. The source of your neck pain should be diagnosed and treated so that you aren’t in pain each and every day. No one needs to suffer from pain that can be treated, and a neuromuscular dentist like Dr. Joseph Serra, can help!
