TMJ is a joint and problems with the temporormandibular joint are often referred to as TMJ or TMD (temporomandibular disorders). Tight muscles in the area of the jaw and scalp are almost always implicated in TMD but may or may not be the underlying cause of the problem. The underlying problem may actually be driven by muscle dysfunction in the back or neck which triggers problems with the muscles of the TMJ. If you suffer from TMD, please contact me to schedule an appointment so we can reduce your pain, stop the clicking noise and restore your normal range of motion.
