The phrase “Back to School” has become synonymous with purchasing those perfect school supplies and scheduling clothes shopping days.  However, in all that preparation, we can often forget the stress of back to school or even changing schools, and the effect it has on school age children. Children can have TMJ symptoms also, and this time of year in grade school to high school students, symptoms such as headaches and facial pain can start or resurface.  From first time middle schoolers stressing about remembering locker combinations or where their next class is, to high school students with social and academic pressures, children can start showing a variety of symptoms as the reality of summer vacation’s end draws near. Treatment for TMJ symptoms for school age children can begin quickly and relieve your child from their pain. It’s our goal to get your child’s pain under control, so they can go back to enjoying their youth, creating a smooth transition into the new school year—and the next. It’s August.  There’s still time available for consultation at our office. You’re not alone, and there are answers. Doctor Francis O’Day
