TMJ Therapy

There is hope for TMJ Pain

Do you experience any of the following on a regular basis? Jaw clicking or popping, face or jaw pain, limited jaw opening, ear pain, tinnitus, headaches, neck pain, or dizziness? If so, you may be experiencing TMJ pain.

The temporomandibular joint or TMJ, is a complex joint located in front of each ear. When the TMJ is not working correctly, it can make doing simple things like opening and closing the mouth, biting, chewing, talking, or singing difficult and at times debilitatingly painful. You may also have headaches, neck pain, sinus pain, ear pain, dizziness, and ringing in the ears.

TMJ pain, or Temporomandibular Dysfunction, is not strictly limited to the jaw, it can also be influenced by head and neck alignment and posture.
