The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is where your jaw connects to the side of your head. It needs to be able to move up and down and side to side, as well as handle the enormous forces that the jaw can exert. It one of the most complicated joints in the body, with a specialized structure and tissue makeup.
If you are having pain or other problems with your jaw, you’re not the only one — an estimated 10 million Americans also suffer from TMJ issues.
TMJ problems can be chronic and debilitating, and if left untreated can lead to other symptoms like migraines and tinnitus. Fortunately, there are now non-invasive and drug-free ways to resolve imbalances in the TMJ.
