Temporomandibular Joint Disorder – Credence Physiotherapy, NE, Calgary

TMJ stands for Temperomandibular Joint Disorder which is your jaw joint. The temperomandibular joint is formed by the mandible or jaw bone, joining with the temporal bone of the skull, just below and in front of the ear. The TMJ is opened and closed many 1000’s of times each day as we eat, speak, breathe and yawn and is thus the focal point of much activity and physical forces.

Disorders of the TMJ are often referred to as TMJ or Tempero-mandibular joint disorder or TMJ dysfunction.
