What is This TMJ Stuff?


Recently many academies and institutes have been covering TMJ and TMD work. The National Institutes of Health discusses TMJ DISORDERS, produced and distributed by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research in partnership with the Office of Research on Women’s Health, components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland.

The challenges posed by TMJ disorders span the research spectrum, from causes to diagnosis through treatment and prevention. Researchers throughout the health sciences are working together not only to gain a better understanding of the Temporomandibular joint and muscle disease process, but also to improve quality of life for people affected by these disorders.

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (TMJ disorders) are problems or symptoms of the chewing muscles and joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull.

There are many articles posted within our website about TMJ and its impact on the Parkinson’s world. We encourage you to read the articles as well as research on your own.
