Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (Jaw Pain)

About 1 in 10 people suffer from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD) and women are at least twice more commonly affected than men.

The main causes for TMJD are trauma, such as an impact to the face, and dental procedures.

Jaw pain, difficulty chewing, and clicking and locking of the jaw joint are the main symptoms of TMJD.

Other less known symptoms are grinding of teeth (during the day and/or night), neck pain, and headaches.

TMJ

While most people affected by TMJD decide to consult their dentist for splint therapy, reviews of the literature of manual therapy for temporomandibular disorders state that also manual therapy for TMJD is viable and cost effective.
