TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT (TMJ)
The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) consist of joints connecting the jawbone to the skull, which is in front of the earlobe and functions as a unique joint. We use this joint many times during the day and as a result, makes it susceptible to pain and possible dislocation.
TEMPOROMANDIBULAR DYSFUNCTION (TMD)
Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD) is a medical condition that can be caused by a variety of muscle skeletal issues. When the joint moves out of place, this can cause pressure on sensitive structures and muscles around the joint.
