Temporomandibular Joint disorder

TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint disorder) is the second most common musculoskeletal condition that causes pain and disability. It becomes problematic when the patient faces difficulty in opening their mouth while performing certain functions such as speaking, eating, yawning, etc.  A number of factors contribute to this disorder, including trauma, grinding teeth during sleep, or arthritis.
