Does your ear, jaw, neck, and shoulders pain a lot and you have no idea why it is happening? Well, if you suffer from unexplained pain or ache in your jaw, ears, neck, and shoulders then it is caused by the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) which connects the skull and jaw.
Some painful symptoms are migraine headaches and ear pain. Misaligned teeth, bruxism, facial injury, bad posture, and synovitis, jaw can increase the risk of developing TMJ.
If you have one or more risks and suffering from any of these symptoms then our TMJ physiotherapy Ottawa team is here to help you. Other symptoms which you may face are:

The temporomandibular joint is a complex structure that is made of muscles, tendons, and bones. So you may experience pain on both sides of the jaw. If you suffering from any of these symptoms or pain then call our TMJ physiotherapy Ottawa team to assist you further.
