When pain is controlling your life, well… that ain’t no life at all.
You’re not entirely sure what’s at the cause and you aren’t entirely sure when it started. What you do know is you are in pain – all the time.
- You can’t function, concentrate or focus…
- You are alienating your family and friends…
- You really just don’t care about anything…except the pain.
Why Am I In Pain?
Pain is your brain’s way of telling you that something is wrong. It is like a ‘check engine’ light that pops up in your car; it’s telling you to stop and take notice. It’s an early warning sign that requires your attention before something more serious occurs.
When your jaw joint (TMJ) is out-of-sync or working improperly, it causes an unbalanced bite. This uneven bite results in the muscles of your head, neck and jaws working extra-hard, basically over-compensating for the bad bite.
The over-worked muscles from an unbalanced bite can result in pain that will materialize in the form of migraines, headaches, ear-aches, muscles tenderness, facial discomfort, a sore jaw and a multitude of other symptoms.
Suffering can be a thing of the past.
Pain is a complex problem and it can affect every aspect of your life. Physical, emotional, mental, social, economical, personal . . . it’s contributing to a reduced quality of life.
For some time now, (maybe even for years) you have suffered from severe, debilitating discomfort. It might be in your jaw and mouth. Maybe in your face, eyes, ears, neck, shoulders and/or back. You have had a permanent headache for as long as you can remember and you can never find lasting relief.
