TMJ/TMD (Jaw Pain Therapy)

TMJ stands for the Temporomandibular Joint. Subtle chronic misalignments in the Temporomandibular Joint can lead to a condition known as Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). TMJ/TMD is a common significant source of head and neck pain.

Symptoms of TMJ /TMD:

  • Popping, clicking, or crackling sounds in or near the ear
  • Pain when opening or closing the mouth
  • Tenderness or soreness of the jaw
  • Pain or tenderness when chewing
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Severe pain in the joint area
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Pain around the eyes, cheeks
  • Chronic fatigue (especially associated with the jaw)
  • Tenderness and swelling at the sides of the face
  • "Locking" of the jaw
  • Toothaches
  • Tingling or burning sensations in the mouth, tongue, or throat
  • Malocclusion (teeth not coming together properly)
