TMJ is a commonly used acronym standing for TemporoMandibular Joint. If a person experiences head or facial pain, clicking or locking of the jaw joint, they might be suffering from TMD or temporomandibular dysfunction. Fort HealthCare has therapists who have taken a special interest in treating this joint for pain and dysfunction. There are specialized tests and observations which need to be made to assess the jaw as the source of their discomfort.
