WHAT IS TMJ PAIN?
The temporomandibular joint disorder is often referred to as TMJD, TMJ or TMD. The jaw joint is possibly the one joint in the human body we take most for granted.
We constantly use the jaw joint on a minute to minute basis without even realizing it. When the jaw joint is damaged other parts of the system such as the muscles and teeth become irritated. The jaw joint itself is usually not painful; therefore, the pain is referred to other areas and structures. Consequently, TMJ disorder has earned the name and is known as The Great Impostor. The most common TMJ symptoms are headaches, ear symptoms, and restricted jaw motion. The jaw is usually not the cause of any of these.
