New Season, New TMJ Pain

by | Nov 13, 2021 | TMD Specialis, TMJ Specialist

Like most joints, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can be greatly affected by weather change. Our joints are highly sensitive to the altering of temperature that comes with the change of seasons; because of this, when people say, “I feel it in my bones that a storm is coming,” it isn’t completely inaccurate. Dr. Sid Solomon, DDS is a leading Los Angeles TMJ Disorder expert. With an abundance of neuromuscular experience as well as further specialized education, Dr. Sid Solomon has a deep understanding of the head, what affects it, and how to treat disorders, such as TMD.

As summer transforms into fall, temperatures and weather change with the season. With this variation, the barometric pressure fluctuates as well. The force behind this pressure actually causes tension, and therefore puts a lot of stress on the joints. Because of this, patients who have a condition, such as TMJ Disorder, are often times particularly affected by the change in that most typically don’t notice. Although the barometric pressure does change with every season, the transitions into fall and winter are the hardest on the body, even more so in patients with problems like arthritis and TMJ Disorder. On top of the body reacting to the pressure changes, it also reacts to the actual drop in temperature. Joints automatically loosen and relax in warm weather, but in the cold, they typically tighten and contract, causing even further stress and even pain.

 As the weather begins to change, if you’re either noticing for the first time, or experiencing worse TMJ pain than usual, it may be time to address and fix the underlying issue behind it with Dr. Sid Solomon. Come in to one of our offices today for a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Sid Solomon, dedicated to getting to know you, your health history and symptoms in order to diagnose and prepare a plan of action in order to treat your TMJ Disorder!
