What Causes Jaw Pain?
Problems with the TMJ, more commonly known as temporomandibular disorders (TMD), occur as a result of the issues with the jaw bone, jaw joint or the facial muscles that enable jaw movements.
TMD can be caused by habitual jaw grinding, problems with jaw muscles, direct trauma to the jaw, and spinal issues (which may arise from bad posture).
Symptoms of Jaw Pain
The most common symptoms of TMD include jaw locking, jaw clicking, jaw pain, and ear pain. TMD is usually preceded by constant neck pains and headaches too.
