TMJ & Jaw Joint Pain

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder Pain (TMJ) / Jaw Joint Pain

The jaw joint, or temporomandibular joint (TMJ), gets its name from the two bones comprising the joint. The temporal bone of the skull and the mandible (the jaw bone) fit together to form the hinge-like jaw joint.

Dentist have long known the temporomandibular joint dysfunction can cause symptoms far removed from the joint itself. Headaches, back pain, and pain across the shoulders are often relieved after temporomandibular joint dysfunction is corrected. More recent evidence shows that the temporomandibular joint can cause functional problems throughout the body.

Dr. Lisa can evaluate and treat with chiropractic care, this can be helpful in addressing TMJ malfunction.
