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. The most frequently used joint in the body is the TMJ, as a result it is at a higher risk of causing pain and stress.
TEMPOROMANDIBULAR DYSFUNCTION (TMD)
Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD) is a medical condition that can be caused by a variety of muscle and joint issues. When the jaw moves out of place, it can cause pressure on sensitive structures and muscles around the joint. This can lead to muscle stiffness and joint pain, affecting range of motion in the jaw.
