Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)
TMJ disorders relate to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. These problems can cause pain, difficulty chewing, and other issues. These disorders can affect people of any age.
Most TMJ-related symptoms are caused by the physical stress on the structures around the joint including the cartilage disk at the joint, muscles of the jaw, ligaments and nerves and teeth.
The cause of TMJ is unknown for many who suffer from it. Symptoms include difficulty chewing or biting, headache, earache, jaw tenderness or pain and inability to easily open and close the mouth. These symptoms usually come up unexpectedly and return from time to time.
From personal experience, extensive research and years of practice, we understand the structural and functional aspects of TMD and the measurable, physical remedies that can eliminate or decrease your pain.
