SINUS ALLERGIES? TMJ PAIN?
Sinus Pain Treatment in Charlotte, NC
Relish the Comfort of Alleviating Sinus, Allergy, and TMJ Pain.
If you suffer from sinus or allergy pain, it’s possible that upper cervical or specific joint problems could be the root cause. This means the discomfort you feel often results in facial pain rather than a headache. And this painful experience can be triggered by nasal or sinus congestion, stress, certain foods, and smoke.
TMJ, or the temporomandibular joint, disorders are often caused by habits stemming from tension, such as jaw clenching, teeth grinding, and pencil chewing. The TMJ behaves like a sliding hinge that connects your skull to your jawbone, so pain is often felt in the jaw joint and muscles that control jaw movement.
Although these pains are within close proximity of each other, they take different avenues of prevention and relief. Fortunately, the healthcare professionals at Dynamic Health Carolinas use a sophisticated multidisciplinary approach coupled with advanced diagnostics and treatment protocols to alleviate sinus, allergy, and TMJ pain relief.
To supplement our treatments, you can use the tips below to help reduce or prevent the effect of these pains.
Tips for Prevention of Pain Caused by Sinuses, Allergies, and TMJ.
According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (ACAAI), the simplest means of preventing sinus and allergy pain is avoiding allergens that trigger them. A few primary directions from them include:
- Avoid using window fans that can draw pollens and molds into the house.
- Stay indoors when common triggers hit their peak.
- Use covers for bedroom furniture that reduce exposure to dust mites.
- Keep humidity in your house low.
- Wash your hands immediately after petting any animals.
The Mayo Clinic offers easy-to-follow instructions that will help prevent TMJ pain, including:
- Avoid overuse of jaw muscles (e.g. chewing gum or eating sticky food).
- Stretch and massage your jaw muscles.
