Do you suffer from frequent headaches, jaw discomfort, or even other issues with your jaw such as clicking, grinding, or grating? If your answer is yes to any of these issues, there is a good chance you are suffering from an issue with your TMJ and may have TMD.
Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is extremely important in proper functioning of your jaw, and if it has become injured or displaced, it can result in development of temporomandibular jaw disorder (TMD). TMD and other problems with the TMJ are no laughing matter and can result in a number of different problems, such as headaches, grinding jaw joints, and even more.

Any of the following symptoms can be caused by a temporomandibular disorder:
- Neck Pain.
- Clicking or popping of the jaw.
- Painful jaw movement.
