The temporomandibular joint is so vital for everyday function. It helps you chew, talk, swallow, and breathe.
This also means that when the TMJ is not functioning optimally, it can generate a large variety of symptoms.
Dysfunction of the TMJ is called TMD and is a common driver of headaches, neck pain, vision issues, and even arm pain.
Our TMJ specialists in Evanston, IL, evaluate the TMJ joint for many patients and help resolve clicking and tightness before it progresses into more serious symptoms.
If your jaw is locked open or locked closed, give us a call immediately, as research shows that recovery rates are best when the locked jaws is mobilized within 2-6 hours of initial locking (the sooner the better!)
We also work with other TMJ/TMD specialists in the area including dentists and Precision Neuromuscular Therapy specialists.
