Temporomandibular Disorder & TMJ Treatment Winnipeg
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), is the second most prevalent musculoskeletal condition causing jaw pain and/or disability in North America. TMD can concern one or both temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and/or the surrounding jaw muscles.
Pain in the jaw or head associated with TMD can be caused by something inside the jaw joint, such as the disc, or outside of the joint, most likely an issue with the surrounding muscles. It may also be that there could be something going on both inside and outside the joint. It may have come on after an actual event or trauma, or it may have just come on seemingly out of nowhere.
An assessment by a trained physiotherapist can help determine the origin of your pain. For some people, the problem can actually start in the neck and shoulders and move upwards. In some cases, TMD can be very debilitating and have an effect on our activities of daily living.
TMJ Disorders can present differently in everyone. It could be just one symptom that you experience or a collection.
Common symptoms include:
- Jaw pain or aches
- Clicking or popping heard from one or both joints
- Pain with eating, yawning or talking
- Frequent headaches
