What are TMDs?
Causes of temporomandibular disorder (TMD)
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint (or TMJ), and surrounding facial muscles. Your temporomandibular joints are located on both sides of your face, just in front of your ears. The TMJs connect your lower jawbone to your skull and assist in movements like chewing and speaking. Many people use the terms TMJ and TMD interchangeably.
Signs of TMJ include:
pain around your jaw, ear and temple
clicking, popping or grinding noises when you move your jaw
a headache around your temples
difficulty opening your mouth fully
your jaw locking when you open your mouth
The pain may be worse when chewing and when you feel stressed. TMJ can also stop you getting a good night's sleep.
TMJ can be caused by:
wear and tear of the joint
a blow to the head or face
an uneven bite
Would I benefit from TMJ Therapy?
TMJ Therapy can reduce or eliminate jaw pain, help avoid headaches and migraines and make eating less painful. TMJ Therapy has been linked to benefiting a whole range of health conditions from chronic fatigue and sleep disorders to irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, and more
