To relieve jaw pain caused by a TMJ or TMD, temporal mandibular joint or disorder, you first need to understand what structures make up the joint. For this post I will concentrate on some of the musculature that is related to jaw pain and what can be done about your jaw pain in Fort Collins today.
The some of the primary muscles seen above that can cause jaw pain are the Temporalis, Buccinator, Masseter and the Pterygoids.
