TMJ affects the temporomandibular joints, which connect the lower jaw (mandible) to the bone at the side of the head (temporal bone). Millions of Americans currently experience some sort of affliction related to this facial area.
For many people, TMJ-related discomfort will diminish on its own. Basic self-care procedures often ease symptoms as well. If however treatment is needed, you should have an accurate diagnosis from those who specialize in TMJ disorders – those with a strong background in musculoskeletal ailments and treatment of pain conditions.
