TMJ- Jaw Pain​

TMJ- Jaw Pain

Sometimes it is difficult to chew because of jaw pain, or you may even have popping or clicking when doing so. It is usually due to a misalignment of the temporomandibular joint or TMJ. A disc between the temporal bone and mandible can be shifted forward or back. When either occurs, the TMJ becomes painful and it becomes difficult to open your mouth and chew. This issue is treatable by gently realigning the TMJ with gentle adjustments to restore proper function and make life much more enjoyable.

Temporomandibular disorder, known as TMJ describes acute or chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint. Injury, stress and clenching during sleep cause bring on these symptoms.
