What Is A Migraine?

More than a headache


Migraine pain builds in intensity and is typically located on one side of your head. Many people who suffer from migraines feel nauseated, are sensitive to smells and noises, experience ringing in their ears, see flashing lights, or have blind spots during their migraine episodes.

What Is The Difference Between A Migraine And A Headache?


A headache is typically associated with environmental/seasonal, stress, and tension triggers. However, headaches often subside when stress and pressure are relieved by improving your posture if you have been hunched over your desk or getting some water or fresh air. On the other hand, migraines last from four to 72 hours if left untreated. Then once it subsides, a migraine can leave you feeling drained of energy for days.

How Does TMJ Affect My Migraines?

Learn more about the jaw-body connection with Dr. Siman.


Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) gets a daily workout. It is a joint that connects your jawbone to your skull, and every time you chew, swallow or talk, your TMJ springs into action. A TMJ disorder may develop when something happens to the joints and the surrounding muscles in your jaw.

TMJ disorder may cause the following symptoms that then trigger your migraine:

  • Soreness or pain while chewing
  • Stiffness in the jaw or locking of the jaw joint
  • Popping, clicking, or grating noises when you open and close your mouth

When these or other symptoms cause the surrounding jaw muscles to become inflamed, the pain your body is experiencing can move to larger muscles, amplifying as shoulder, neck, back pain, and even migraines.

TMJ Migraine Symptoms

Migraines affect everyone differently.


Genetics and the environment play a major role in how migraines affect you. For example, a significant pain pathway may involve your trigeminal nerve. Other migraine symptoms include hormonal changes in women—especially when using oral contraceptives, stress, drinking wine, coffee, or certain foods—aged cheeses, pepperoni, salami, and pickled foods are also shown to be major migraine triggers.

TMJ Migraine Solutions

How neurotransmitters play a role in migraine pain.


Traditional methods to obtain headache relief and proper jaw alignment are not adequate for Dr. Siman. Instead, he utilizes more advanced technology to get to the root of your problem and help alleviate your pain. Unlike most medical professionals who treat TMJ—orthodontists, neurologists, and ENTs, Dr. Siman dedicates himself to providing painless, non-surgical holistic therapies for his patients. In Sherman Oaks, Dr. Siman offers the following TMJ solutions:

Consultation and Evaluation

During your consultation, Dr. Siman conducts a thorough medical history and clinical examination to include finding the source of the following TMJ-related symptoms—migraines, headaches, ringing in the ears, neck and shoulder pains, snoring, sleep apnea, and more.

In-House CT Scan

Our in-house state-of-the-art CT Scan lets Dr. Siman evaluate your body and determine how your bite might be affecting your muscles. Inflammation of large muscle groups around the neck and shoulders could ultimately lead to a diagnosis that reduces migraine pain and muscle aches!

Jaw Alignment

The alignment of your jaw is vital for the proper airflow through your mouth. A misalignment bite dramatically affects how you swallow and whether or not your tongue thrusts forward or backward. Dr. Siman believes it begins with the bite, so he can position the jaws to where your muscles are the most relaxed and tension-free.

Custom-fit Orthotic Device

You will never receive a generic mouthguard or night guard from Dr. Siman’s office. Instead, he takes meticulous time to customize each and every orthotic device based on the specific needs, function, and optimum comfort of his patient. First, it is crucial you have the availability to function in your daily activities with the dental appliance. Then, once your new jaw position is established and tested, Dr. Siman will continue to monitor your progress for months to ensure that he has given you the best treatment.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Dr. Siman uses physio-therapeutic equipment, such as TENS, to relax tense jaw muscles. The transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS) delivers pulses of electricity to your body’s neurotransmitters, so the neurons send signals to release endorphins helping your muscles relax.
