What Is TMJ Disorder?

Often when we experience pain while eating, our first instinct is to assume it is related somehow to a dental problem. You may believe your pain is related to a damaged tooth or swelling gums. But while your teeth may be damaged, the reason could be symptomatic of TMJ disorder.

What is TMJ disorder, you ask? TMJ disorder is a condition that affects your temporomandibular joint, which is the joint that connects the jawbone to the skull. It’s the joint you use whenever you’re chewing or speaking.

You may start experiencing issues affecting your temporomandibular joint due to arthritis or stress. You are also more likely to experience TMJ issues if you grind or clench your teeth while sleeping.

Pain near your jaw is the primary symptom of TMJ dysfunction, but it’s not the only one you may experience. The pain may also radiate from other parts of your face and even down to your neck and shoulders. Experiencing headaches is also fairly common for individuals dealing with TMJ dysfunction.

Eating may also turn into an unpleasant experience if you have a TMJ disorder. The simple act of chewing may become painful, and your jaw may feel uneven.

You may also hear clicking or popping noises whenever you are chewing something. At times, it may also feel like your jaw locks.

How Does a Chiropractor Treat TMJ Dysfunction?

Once the chiropractor has confirmed that your symptoms are related to TMJ disorder, they can proceed with treatment. TMJ disorder can be addressed using various forms of chiropractic care.
