Jaw or TMJ Pain

Jaw or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain is discomfort associated with the jaw joint and the muscles controlling its movement. It often results from issues such as teeth grinding, clenching, misalignment of the jaw, or arthritis. Symptoms may include jaw stiffness, pain while chewing, clicking or popping sounds, headaches, and even neck or shoulder pain.

Treatments will vary based on the cause and type of TMJ pain. Accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment are essential for effectively managing symptoms and getting back to doing what you love. At STRONG., we may recommend seeking help through physiotherapy, chiropractic, or massage. Chiropractic, physiotherapy, or massage treatments might include exercise or rehabilitation of the neck and jaw, tissue release of tight muscles, joint mobilization/manipulation, or acupuncture.

Consultation with a dentist may be needed for more severe cases.
