Jaw joint dysfunction is a group of conditions that can cause joint pain. They can stop your jaw joint and the muscles that control the movement of your jaw from working correctly
It is a common condition affecting around 1 in 6 people in the UK
Frequent causes are problems with Alignment, dental extraction, prolonged dental treatment, wear of the teeth, and muscle tension that results in “grinding”.
Jaw problems can contribute to or cause headaches as well as head, neck and shoulder problems.
Physiotherapy techniques can help reduce muscle tension , retrain correct function and whole body balance.
An interesting finding is that people with TMJ problems frequently have very tight calf muscles.
Headaches are also frequently caused by upper cervical joint dysfunction and poor posture.
