Have you been experiencing pain when using your jaw but have no clear idea what is causing the issue? It may not be a past injury that is causing the pain. Instead, it may be a condition known as temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD).
There is a joint in the jaw known as the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). TMD can refer to a number of different issues with the TMJ. One of the most common issues is pain when moving the jaw. This is the result of the TMJ becoming strained and placing pressure on the surrounding nerves and blood vessels.
