Postural Imbalances, Neck pain, & TMJ

Neck and jaw pain can have debilitating effects on your day-to-day life. Addressing postural imbalances through proper corrective exercises and targeted chiropractic therapies can help restore your body's proper alignment and reduce excessive strain on these areas.

What Are Postural Imbalances?


Postural imbalances can contribute to neck pain and jaw pain due to the interconnected nature of the musculoskeletal system. Poor posture, such as slouching or forward head posture, can place excessive strain on the muscles, ligaments, and joints of the neck and jaw. This can lead to muscular imbalances, increased tension, and abnormal loading on the cervical spine and temporomandibular joint (TMJ).


Over time, these imbalances can cause discomfort, stiffness, and pain in the neck and jaw regions. Additionally, postural misalignments can affect the alignment of the spine and TMJ, further exacerbating pain and dysfunction.

Common Symptoms and Pain Points

Patients who suffer from postural imbalances, neck pain, and jaw pain often face significant problems and pain points that can affect their daily lives. Some of the common challenges experienced by these patients include:


  • Chronic pain and discomfort

  • Limited range of motion

  • Impaired sleep and restlessness

  • Impact on daily activities

  • Emotional distress

  • Interference with eating and speaking

  • Diagnostic challenges and treatment options


It is essential for patients experiencing postural imbalances, neck pain, and jaw pain to seek a healthcare provider for an evaluation and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. Working closely with healthcare professionals, such as physical therapists and pain specialists, can help address these pain points, manage symptoms, and improve the overall well-being of the patient.
