Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (Jaw Pain)
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) is a joint formed by your skull and your jaw bone and involves the muscles needed for chewing. Pain or discomfort in this area may also be referred to as a temporomandibular disorder, or TMD. TMJ pain can be extremely debilitating and physiotherapy is the first line of treatment for TMJ pain.
Common signs of discomfort are popping, clicking, muscle tenderness, joint tenderness, or not being able to open your jaw as wide as possible. TMJ symptoms can be mild to severe and if not treated can progress to the extent that patients can have difficulty eating solid food. We have listed some of the common symptoms that patients experience with TMJ dysfunction.
- Pain in the TMJ joint
- Popping or clicking sounds while moving your jaw
- Locking of the jaw in an open position

WHAT CAUSES TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDER?
