Acupuncture and TMJ Pain
Most TMJ disorders, also known as temporomandibular joint disorders, are characterized by pain experienced in the jaw joint or the surrounding tissues. It can stem from a variety of causes, including jaw injuries, chronic teeth clenching (also known as bruxism), arthritis, and other tissue-related diseases. TMJ disorders can cause limited jaw or mouth movements, difficulty chewing, an aching jaw, tender or aching joints, and persistent facial pain.
Many patients with TMJ disorders report pain relief after acupuncture treatments.
