Headaches, neck, shoulder and back pain, as well as many other facial and jaw problems can often be traced back to the jaw joint.
The jaw joint, also known as the tempero-mandibular joint, is a very complex area, and problems can arise if your teeth do not meet together properly, if you grind or clench your teeth, or if the joint itself is not functioning properly.
Usually this means that your dentist rather than your doctor may well be the best person to help ease them.
