What is Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)?
This joint, commonly referred to as the TMJ, is responsible for more daily activity and capable of a greater range of motion than any other joint in the body. As a result, it has a higher risk for malfunctioning and creating associated problems. When this joint is problematic, through tightness, fatigue or by causing imbalances in the bite pattern, it can affect the ears, head, neck, and many other areas of the body. TMJ pain often arises in the forms of headaches and migraines.
