Understanding TMJ 
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (better known as TMJ) affects an outstanding 60 million people in the U.S. alone!  That’s nearly 20% of the entire population.  With more and more people being diagnosed every year, it’s important for those who suffer with TMJ (or think they do), to learn as much as they can about Temporomandibular Joints and how they work in order to better understand what’s causing their pain - and how to get rid of it.

What Are The Temporomandibular Joints?
Hold your fingers on the side of your face in front of your ears.  Now, open and close your mouth.  You should be able to feel a boney hinge on each side. This is called the Temporomandibular Joint and it helps your jaw go up and down with ease.  
More than a simple “hinge” the TM Joint is made up of more muscle groups than any other joint in the body.  But that’s not all.  It also uses bone, ligaments, cartilage and fascia, to connect the lower jaw (called the mandible) to the skull.  Without the complex makeup and interaction of this joint, you would be unable to open and close your mouth; speak, chew or even swallow properly - if at all!
