TMJ Physiotherapy for Jaw Pain
Pain, clicking, or stiff jaw? Could be TMJ dysfunction.
What is TMJ dysfunction?
The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, connects the lower jaw to the skull and is responsible for opening and closing our mouth. Even though it's one of the smallest joints in the body, it's also a very common source of pain for many.
TMJ dysfunction occurs when the muscles and ligaments around your jaw joints become inflamed or irritated. The condition may be acute or chronic, and the resulting pain may be mild or severe. TMJ physical therapy can help alleviate pain and symptoms associated to TMJ dysfunction.
