[tem-puh-roh-man-dib-yuh-ler] Joint Dysfunction
Now that you can pronounce it, don’t you want to know what it means?
TMJ, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, is a common dysfunction that affects the area around the jaw. Pain felt in the TMJ can be traced to issues in the surrounding muscles, ligaments, myofascial tissue, disc, joint capsule, or even degraded cartilage around the jaw. If you have been experiencing headaches, toothaches, dizziness or head pain anywhere from your teeth to around your eyes, you could be suffering from TMJ dysfunction. Although about 20-30% of the adult population is troubled by this disorder, many sufferers of this common disruption go without treatment. Don’t let this be you!
