Are you suffering from jaw pain, difficulty chewing or swallowing, frequent headaches, pain behind the eyes or neck pain? You may have Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). TMD is a common condition that limits the natural function of the jaw, such as opening the mouth and chewing, and can cause pain and other problems. TMD can be caused by a number of factors – an injury to the jaw muscle or joint, mal-alignment of the jaw, teeth grinding, arthritis and/or stress. Fortunately, it can be treated…by physical therapy, of course!
