Temporomandibular Joint Disorder or TMJ is a condition causing inflammation of the Temporomandibular Joint. The Temporomandibular Joint connects the mandible (jaw bone) to your skull. TMJ can be a very painful condition and it can make it difficult to move your jaw. TMJ can impact your ability to speak, sing, eat, chew, swallow, smile, make facial expressions, and even breathe. Because of the wide variety of symptoms (listed below) associated with TMJ, Temporomandibular Joint Disorder can be easily misdiagnosed and is often misunderstood by healthcare professionals.
We’ve been helping patients in our Baker Chiropractic and Wellness clinics with TMJ for nearly 20 years. We know what to look for and how to fix it.
Reports show over 35 million people in the United States currently suffer from TMJ. While this disorder affects both men and women, statistics reflect TMJ to be more common in women. TMJ symptoms may include the following:
- Dull, aching pain in your face
- Headache or Migraine Pain
- Earache Pain
- Jaw Pain
- Hearing Loss
- Difficulty or discomfort biting and chewing food
- Popping or clicking sound when opening your mouth
- Neck and/or Shoulder Pain
