Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ, Jaw pain)

TMJ is an umbrella term covering acute or chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, which connects the mandible (jaw bone) to the skull.

The disorder and resultant dysfunction can result in significant pain and impairment. Like other joints in the body, the TMJ is susceptible to degeneration, inflammation, repetitive strains and acute injury. Problems with the jaw can also be treated in the same ways that other joints in the body are treated with including Chiropractic care, Active Release Technique, Functional Range Release Technique and Acupuncture.
