Physiotherapy for TMJ at Montrose Physiotherapy & Massage in Abbotsford

Do you know which joint is used the most in the human body? You’re right! It’s your jaw joint! You use your Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) to eat, talk, breathe, and for facial expressions.

Yet, if you end up with jaw pain, it may not just go away. And when jaw pain sticks around, you end up with Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD).

Symptoms of TMJ Dysfunction 

You might assume that pain and tenderness in your jaw would be the first symptom of TMJD, but many people don’t have pain. Here are some other symptoms:

  • Clicking of your jaw
  • Your jaw makes a popping noise
  • Your jaw or teeth are grinding
  • You can’t open your mouth all the way
  • Your jaw deviates when opening – enough that you can see your mouth opening crooked in the mirror
  • Not being able to clench your jaw fully

If you grind or clench your teeth, you are more likely to get TMJ Dysfunction. And that sets you up for jaw headaches, dizziness, ear pain, and even upper neck pain.

Some people with TMJ experience so much pain that they can’t talk, eat, or sing! Many have ringing in their ears (Tinnitus), too.
