When you look at the body as a whole, researchers and medical providers are learning that problems at the bottom of the body (feet, ankles, knees) affect everything above (hips, back, shoulders). At the same time, dental problems can affect everything below. According to Dr. Jay Neuhaus of Gramercy Dental Arts, the TMJ area is of major concern. “Just as a misalignment or imbalance in our feet cause ascending problems in our knees, hips, back, shoulders and neck, so can a poor (unbalanced) bite cause descending problems affecting our TMJ (such as pain, locking jaws) and our ears (tinnitus, loss of hearing),” TMJ pain can be devastating if not properly diagnosed and treated.
