What Is TMJ?
TMJ disease is a degenerative condition that affects the temporomandibular joint and the muscles around it. It can cause pain in the jaw, headaches, and pain in the neck. Whether you have TMJ disorder because of myofascial pain, an accident, or degenerative joint disease, it can significantly affect your daily life. At Head and Neck Centers of Excellence, our TMJ experts offer thorough evaluations and custom treatment plans to get to the root of your pain.
Signs of TMJ
It is essential to know the signs of TMJ disease. Look out for pain or soreness in the jaw, clicking or popping sounds when you open or close your mouth, trouble moving your mouth, a locked or stiff jaw, sensitive teeth, or even an earache that isn’t caused by an illness. If you have any of these signs, you should pay attention to them. Our skilled specialists can determine whether you have TMJ and make a treatment plan just for you.
What Causes TMJ?
Even though the exact cause of TMJ disease is often unknown, things like jaw injury, stress, and grinding your teeth can all play a role. At Head and Neck Centers of Excellence, we focus on a method that gets results and gets to the root causes of TMJ disorder. We can help relieve your head, neck, and headaches with our advanced techniques, such as chiropractic and neurophysiology-based treatments.
