Neck tmj pain areas
You may hear TMJ referred to in a number of ways. The temporal bone and mandible interact at the temporomandibular joint called the tmj for short. The masseter muscle can have areas of strain that result in restriction of jaw opening trismus. The pain is of short duration and can be minutes or just seconds and there are long periods between symptoms. Without treatment for disc displacement with reduction, this TMJ problem may progress to the second and possibly third stages. In fact, experts estimate that up to 70 percent of neck problems may be related to dysfunction in the temporomandibular joint.
