Jaw Joint Disorders

Freedom from Facial Pain Restricted Movement

Jaw Joint Disorders

Many people suffer from chronic facial and neck pain as well as headaches or migraine.

This pain can be caused by dysfunction of the the jaw joint called the Temporomandibular joint and this disorder is referred to as Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome (TMD).

The Temporomandibular joint is active in chewing and talking. Our jaw joints are the only paired joints in our body. If one side moves the other side will too. Many muscles, nerves and structures are involved to make this movement possible. If the muscles are no longer working together pain can develop around these joints which can be unpleasant and may even restrict movement. TMD can be caused by bad posture, occlusal misalignment (the way you bite) and trauma like whiplash.

Do you suffer TMD?

Ask yourself the following questions to help determine if you are currently suffering from a TMJ disorder:

Do you suffer from HEADACHES?

Do you suffer from MIGRAINE?

Do your jaw joints make sounds like POPPING, CLICKING, GRATING or GRINDING?

Do you have DIFFICULTY or PAIN CHEWING or OPENING WIDE OR JAWING?

Do your ears ever feel FULL, ITCHY, STUFFY, or CONGESTED?

Has your jaw ever LOCKED OPEN or CLOSED?

Do you suffer from NECK PAIN or STIFFNESS?

Have you ever had a HEAD or NECK INJURY?

Do you often have trouble getting to sleep or STAYING ASLEEP?

Do your ears ever RING, BUZZ?

Do you ever have episodes of DIZZINESS?

Have you been told that you GRIND or CLENCH YOUR TEETH when you sleep?

Do you ever feel PAIN or PRESSURE behind your EYES?

Do you AVOID CERTAIN FOODS because of jaw pain?

Do you awaken with STIFF JAWS, TEMPLE HEADACHES, or SORE TEETH?

Do you feel as though your BITE HAS CHANGED or JUST DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT?
