Are you experiencing consistent pain, muscle spasms or inflammation in your mouth or jaw? You may have Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). TMD refers to any problem affecting normal use of or causing muscle spasms, pain and inflammation to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in the jaw.

TMJ Patient Testimonial

“I suffered from frequent migraine headaches and frequent jaw pain. My provider told me that I had TMJ and referred me to iSpine. That is where I learned that due to years of poor posture in my work as a pharmacist, my neck was weak and muscles tight, resulting in my headaches and jaw pain. The therapists were motivating and I felt like they really cared about helping me get better. My jaw is feeling much better and I now have the tools needed to prevent future injury.”  – Melisa D.
