Temporomandibular joint


Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction or disorder is very common and affects 20-40% of the population. Jaw pain is one of the most characteristic symptoms of TMJ dysfunction. Conservative treatment is effective in 90% of cases.

TMJ problems can be classified into two main groups:

  • Muscular disorders or temporomandibular myopathies: the most frequent conditions are myofascial syndrome, some headaches and bruxism.
  • Articular disorders or temporomandibular arthropathies: these are the intrinsic symptoms of the TMJ itself (dislocations, disc displacements, blockages, etc.).

Physiotherapy can help you restore natural jaw movement and reduce pain.

Treatments are carried out in Sagastieder and Bermingham.
