The temporal mandibular joint is a common joint that can become injured and cause discomfort. Stress is the number one cause to the injury of this joint. Thousands of us grind our teeth and clench our jaw unconsciously when feeling anxious or distressed. Over time, the disc in the joint can start to weaken causing the jaw to be out of alignment. Symptoms include popping of the jaw, pain in the jaw, ear aches, headaches and neck pain. Chiropractic treatments have been very helpful in treating TMJ problems.
