When it comes to TMJ pain, we can normally categorise the problem by two different times of trauma. On one hand, we have a macro type of trauma, this is usually a defined event where we were subjected. On the other hand, we have a micro type of trauma, which is usually smaller and more repetitive traumas that can become problematic over time.
In this blog post, our TMJ chiropractors will discuss the different types of underlying traumas contributing to TMJ pain.
