Temporomandibular Disorders

Temporomandibular Disorders are disorders of the jaw joints which can be related to the muscles that control the jaw, the joint itself or the hinge point. TMD and migraine are both more common in women from young adulthood to midlife and can lead to an increased risk of disability.

A study found those with TMD were 1.8-2 times more likely to have other primary headaches (such as migraine and tension headache) in comparison to controls.1
