The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is where the lower jaw connects to the skull. This joint opens and closes like a hinge and slides forward, backward and side-to-side. TMJ dysfunction occurs as a result of anatomic problems within the joint or tension in the surrounding muscles.
Common TMJ Conditions We Treat:
- Pain/tenderness in jaw, face, neck, head, and ear
- Decreased range of motion in the jaw when opening or closing
- Noise during jaw movements
- Jaw that gets stuck or locked
- Jaw fatigue
- Difficulty chewing
- Facial swelling
- Muscle spasms
- Disc injury
- Shift in jaw alignment
