Everyone stresses out to some degree.
We all have different forms of stress and each of us presents differently. Neck and jaw pain/discomfort is a common presentation, Many times, tension in these areas from jaw-clenching results in headaches.

Most of us don’t realize that this repetitive action is even occurring. Once you pinpoint and become self-aware of this, preventative measures can be taken.

One of the first steps to take would be to see your dentist for a night guard, this can help with grinding of the teeth as well.

Seeking stress management is also a key step in relieving this tension/stress. Addressing the headaches and neck and jaw tension through Chiropractic care helps to reduce the symptoms. The combination of all of these therapies allows for optimal results.
