TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder and is a disorder of the jaw joint itself. It can cause pain and discomfort to those who suffer from it. Many don’t realize that the source of their migraines and neck or shoulder pain can be a result of TMJ. Additionally, it can cause pain in the jaw and teeth.
