Thomas E. Bramanti, D.D.S., Ph.D., is a Board-Certified TMJ Expert.

Unbalanced posture that may cause back pain can also affect the head and neck alignment and even the way the teeth fit together.

Standing, walking or sitting in an uneven position can cause the jaw muscles to be unbalanced – the TMJ disc and muscle structures may experience signs of stress, including pain, swelling and discomfort.

Because the jaw muscles work with other head and neck muscles, symptoms of jaw distress may surface in the head, neck, shoulders. Neck pain symptoms can be a common sign of an uneven and imbalanced bite, causing TMD as the neck muscles become overworked and fatigued trying to balance the head posture being thrown off by stressed/fatigued bite muscles.
