Understanding TMJ disorders
The temporomandibular joint, or more commonly referred to as the TMJ, is the area where you jaw meets your skull at the temporal bone. The joint itself is made up of the mandibular condyle, a disk and the temporal fossa.
TMJ-related pain can be attributed to a variety of factors, such as, biomechanical dysfunction, degenerative disorders, systemic disorders and non-tmj pathology. Through chiropractic care, our focus is on the biomechanical aspect of the TMJ, which may include the muscles, joints, discs, capsules and ligaments involved in the jaw, head and neck region
