Although a migraine is serious to mild pain on top or side of your neck, the problem can simply begin from the base of your skull. Your jaws may be responsible for your migraine headaches.

The hinge that links your jaw to your skull is your temporomandibular muscle (TMJ). You can speak, eat with your TMJ. Chiropractor Andrew Bang, D.C. from the Cleveland Clinic for Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine, says that the supporting muscles of the joint can also be the source of your migraines.

Many TMJ structures under the lip and eyes, on the bottom and ends of the body can add to the suffering, claims Dr. Bang.

Dr. Bang writes, “Headache and migraine pain might be caused by the bones moving your jaw.

This is how it occurs: When you grind or loosen your teeth, your jaws bend or do stuff like chewing gum. The pain caused by the squeezing from your jaw goes elsewhere in the skull, leading to headaches or migraines in serious instances. You may also have teeth, ears or foot-and-mouth pain.

Migraine pain tips to relieve headaches

 Combining jaw surgery with medicines often relieves migraine suffering, claims Dr. Bang. Medications to handle signs of migraine may be prescribed by your doctor or neurologist. You can always seek a  jaw surgery Los Angeles if your problem persists.

Dr. Bang suggests that a chiropractor can use exercise methods to extend his narrow jaw joints. In other cases, physical treatment can be recommended by a chiropractor. The basic stretch of a headache can stop and stop the development of a complete migraine.

Three other regions of the flesh, the arms, throat and head, can help migraine discomfort when narrow or rigid. When the vertebras in the lower spine or neck are misaligned, a chiropractor might use chiropractic manipulation. Sometimes a gentle reorientation that guarantees a healthy variety of movement can offer rapid migraine comfort.

Try this advice from Dr Bang if you believe your TMJ causes headaches:

• Chew the mint instead of the gum

• rub your jaw muscles gently

• Stretch your throat all day
