Jaw & Face Pain

The Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) or jaw is a complex mechanical joint system which allows us to chew, speak, yawn and perform many other daily functions. Most people don’t realise that the jaw is intimately related with the neck, inner ear, teeth and base of the skull and works with these other structures to create normal movement patterns.

Common complaints we hear from our TMJ patients include:

  • Jaw pain
  • Clicking
  • Difficulty opening the mouth
  • Restricted chewing action
  • Face pain
  • Ear Fullness or blockages
  • Dizziness

Research has shown that TMJ pain and dysfunction is common in clients who also have:

  • Neck pain
  • Thoracic pain
  • Low back pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Stress sufferers
  • Those who have been involved in past motor vehicle accidents
