04 Aug TMD Series: Check Your Symptoms with this Quiz
TMD (often referred to as TMJ) is dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint, and it’s a very common – if irritating – condition. One safe and effective way to treat TMD is through physical therapy. This week, we’re beginning a TMD series: we’ll share Physical Therapist articles, a video, and a quiz you can take to see if your symptoms suggest TMD.
- Jaw joint/muscle stiffness
- Pain in the chewing muscles
- Noticeable clicking, popping, or locking of your jaw while talking or eating
- Frequent headaches that may seem like tension headaches
- Continuing earaches or ringing in the ears

- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Left arm pain
- Numbness in the left arm
