TMJ Treatment

A+ A- A Main Content

TMJ dysfunction is a sneaky condition that can go unrecognized in many individuals. The main culprit in this scenario is the temporomandibular joint, which acts as a hinge and gliding joint. It is one of the most frequently used joints in our body.

Signs and Symptoms of TMJ

  • Chronic headaches and/or migraines
  • Locking of the jaw
  • Jaw joint and muscle pain/tightness
  • Ear aches
  • Clicking or popping in the jaw
  • Neck aches
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Etc.

TMJ dysfunction can be triggered by many things, but the most common is an improper bite and trauma to the joint.
