What is TMJ?
TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. Which means that the joint that separates your upper and and lower jaw isn’t functioning properly. The challenge with the TMJ joint is that it is incredibly complex. Actually, one of the most complex joints in the body as it is responsible for moving the jaw forward to back and side to side.
TMJ symptoms range widely for everybody, but the most common symptoms of TMJ are:
- Jaw clicking or popping.
- Pain when you open you mouth wide or yawn.
- Locked out jaw
- Jaw muscles feel tender.
