    I saw a doctor online that was treating torticollis with an oral device. The muscles in your neck can be seriously affected by you TMJ. If there is an imbalance in your bite it can cause your TMJ to lock up and it can then move into your neck muscles. This may seem far fetched, but I have been a massage therapist for 9 years and I have definitely witnessed the connection between the two. Find a doctor, massage therapist, chiropractor or dentist in your area that does TM release and see if you have any relief. Worse case senerio, it doesn't help, but it promise it is worth a shot!
