Jaw Pain & TMJ! Part 1

Enjoy this “Get Healthy!” post from your Lake Forest Orange County chiropractor, Dr. Tim Gooing.

Many people experience pain in their face, neck and back because of something called TMJ disorder. So what is TMJ and why is it important?

TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint, which is the joint between your jawbone and skull.

TMJ disorder is caused by injury or inflammation (or both) to the TMJ.

Here’s the issue and why knowing about this is important:

If you’re not addressing the problems in your jaw, your back and neck problems will continue.

Plain and simple.

Many do not think about the fact that disorders with one part of the body will create disorders in others - there is a likelihood that persisting problems in your neck and back has something to do with a disorder in the jaw.

TMJ itself is a very complex disorder.

There are many different causes and treatments, which I’ll address in more detail in my part 2 post (there’s so much here we needed another article!)

So for this part 1 post, I wanted to introduce TMJ and simply push a call to action.

If you:

  • Grind your teeth

  • Have had trauma to the jaw

  • Have a tight neck

  • Have jaw misalignment
