Neck Disorder May Worsen Jaw Pain and Function

Examinations of temporomandibular (TMD) patients revealed that those with restricted cervical range of motion experienced more severe TMDrelated pain and disability than TMD patients with normal cervical range of motion. The findings suggest that dysfunction in the cervical spine may play a role in TMD and treatment to restore normal motion in the neck—such as chiropractic care—may be necessary to achieve a successful outcome.
