TMJ stands for the articulation that joins the temporal bone (head) to the mandible bone (jaw). If there is an imbalance in these joints, cycle of pain or muscle spasm can occur. Some common results are: Headaches; earaches; difficulty in opening and closing; clicking or popping in the joint; a dull aching pain around the ears that spreads to the face; sore and painful jaw muscle; clenching and grinding; toothaches.
