Although TMJ is the acronym (name used to identify) the temporomandibular joint, TMJ is also the term used to identify the conditions of pain and/or dysfunction of this joint. This is a very real condition caused by disturbances in the action of the jaw. Research has shown that many factors may lead to this disorder – it can occur by itself or be a part of a more complex problem. We understand the complexities of craniofacial pain that are unique to each patient. Some patients experience TMJ pain and dysfunctions, some experience frequent headaches (known as migraines, tension, or cluster), while others may have facial neuralgias, musculoskeletal pain, or a combination of them.
