Understanding Where You Are Experiencing TMJ

Your TM joint is on either side of your head. It connects your lower jaw bone to the temporal bones of the skull. The muscles control the joints that are attached to the mandible and allow the jaw to move. When you open your mouth, the upper ends of the mandible slide along the base of the skull. When you close your mouth, they return to their original position. At this point, many TMJ patients hear popping and clicking in their jaw.

Patients Suffer from TMJ for a Vast Array of Reasons

TMJ is a very common condition. Patients experience TMJ for various reasons. Injury/trauma to the jaw, degenerative joint diseases like arthritis, infections, teeth grinding, nail biting, and autoimmune diseases are some reasons. Many people dealing with it do not realize that a chiropractor can help with the pain associated with TMJ. There are many symptoms of TMJ, including:
  • Jaw Pain and Soreness
