A Possible Cause of Insomnia, Jaw Pain or Hormone Imbalances
The human body is so complex and fascinating! Have a look at the symptoms that can occur if there is a problem with a bone at the front of the skull (the sphenoid bone). These “might include insomnia, sleeping disorders (including sleep apnea), TMJ, jaw pain, ear problems, temporal headache, dental problems, etc. … hormonal imbalances might occur, … sensitive skin, rash, and eczema.”
In the diagram it shows how the sphenoid bone is almost an exact mirror image of the pelvis, and if one is out of alignment it is very common to find the other is out as well. So whenever someone comes in for lower back or hip pain, we like to check if their pelvis and sphenoid bone are out as well.
