Hi there, I'm Dr. Jason Mounts. Today I'd like to visit with you about some issues that some folks have. That have some very difficult symptoms to diagnose. It can be very confusing and that's TMJ. People have come to my office before, kind of as a last resort. Wanting to know what's wrong. They've been to their doctors, they've been to their chiropractors, and they can't figure out what's wrong. They are having headaches or they think they have an ear infection or different things like that, but everything checks out clear.
So, then those folks tend to refer them to us. To let us check out and see what kind of problems they're having. Lots of times it turns out, even though, sometimes it feels like a toothache lots of times. It turns out that these folks are having problems with their TMJ. Now what the TMJ is, it's actually just your jaw joint. It's just a fancy initials for it but when people start having symptoms there,
that joint is a very complex joint. One of the most complex in your body, actually. So, there are lots of different things that that can go wrong and start causing symptoms in that joint.
