Joint treatment

What is TMJ and causes of its pain?

TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint. It is a joint formed by your skull and your jaw bone and involves the muscles needed for chewing. It is also responsible for opening and closing your mouth, allowing the jaw to move smoothly up and down and side to side, and enables you to talk, chew, and yawn. What are the reasons to cause TMJ pain? There is a disc of cartilage to keep your jaw movement smooth. When muscles are irritated, are irritated, the disc is displaced, or if you have arthritis or another joint disease, the smoothness may be disrupted. Common signs of discomfort are popping, clicking, muscle tenderness, joint tenderness, or being unable to open your jaw as wide as possible. There are three main categories of pain:


  1.  Myofascial pain or pain in the muscles that control the jaw and the connecting neck and shoulder muscles. 
  2.  Internal derangement of the joint, or a dislocated or displaced disc. 
  3.  A degenerative joint disease, like arthritis, in the jaw joint.
