TMJ


TMJ, short for Temporomandibular Joint, is a hinge joint that connects the back of the jaw to the temporal bone of the skull just in front of each ear. This joint along with the surrounding soft tissues of muscles and ligaments aids in the ability to open and close the jaw during talking, chewing, and yawning.

Did you know that it’s the most active joint of the body moving upwards around 2,000 times per day? When this joint becomes misaligned, the result can often be popping or clicking when opening the jaw. Eventually, this improper motion can lead to pain around the joint, jaw-locking, or even headaches.

The symptoms of TMJ can sometimes be improved by whole body vibration.
