Pain in Your Jaw May Be Linked to Your Mind

Jaw Pain

When people complain of pain in their jaw and surrounding facial area, they are usually enduring temporomandibular joint (TMJ). It is a fairly common dental care condition that was always thought to be caused by problems with the jaw muscles or habits like tooth grinding. But lately, new research has shown that psychological suffering may really cause these physical symptoms.

These research findings were attributed to the physical symptoms of depression and anxiety because these two psychological conditions can lead to increased activity in the jaw muscles, which can cause inflammation and muscle pain throughout the jaw area.

An alternate explanation was that a chemical imbalance in the brains of people with depression and anxiety causes them to process pain in an abnormal way, according to Dr. Stefan Kindler of the department of oral and maxillofacial surgery/plastic surgery at the University of Greifswald. Research has previously associated TMJ with depression, but this study indicated a strong link between the signs of TMJ and the symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Medication or physical therapy, have typically been used to treat TMJ, but serious cases have required surgery. With the revelation that TMJ may have psychological sources, we all may need to completely change the way that we perceive TMJ and how it is treated.
