Do you suffer from jaw pain? Does it often feel stiff and sore? You could have a temporomandibular joint disorder. When the joint that connects your jaw to your skull on either side of your face functions incorrectly, it can significantly impact your quality of life. It can be difficult to chew, speak, or even yawn. Although you may feel like you are alone, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research estimates as much as 12% of the population also lives with the condition. To get relief, you can benefit from TMJ therapy in Coconut Grove.
