How are PTSD and TMJ Related?
PTSD and TMJ have been demonstrated to have a significant relationship. As a result of the effects of PTSD on the human body, the TMJ can become and remain hyperactive.
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a mental condition associated with chronic anxiety, which can lead to problems with the temporomandibular joint. Many people with PTSD constantly live in a state of "fight or flight" that can cause their jaw muscles to clench and brace for prolonged periods. TMJ pain can result from this unconscious bracing, and a heightened stress hormone level may contribute to the condition. PTSD and TMJ disorder should not be left untreated.
