In order to make your condition more manageable, we have put together a list of five helpful tips you can use to alleviate your headache. Check them out below.

Tips for TMJ Headaches

  • Ice Pack or Cold Compress: Pressure and low temperature can help reduce swelling in and around your jaw, preventing headaches from getting worse.
  • Joint Massage: Try gently massaging the TMJ joints, which are located near the temples. It can help alleviate pain coming from the jaw.
  • Wear A Mouthguard: Most TMJ tension occurs at night, while we sleep. Wearing a mouthguard can help prevent tooth grinding and alleviate pain in the long term.
