TMJ problems may stem from a number of issues. Some may originate from physical problems, such as misaligned jaws, crooked teeth, or bruxism – the chronic grinding or clenching of teeth, while others could have been triggered by head or jaw trauma from an accident. Genetics, arthritis, and poor posture are also common causes of TMJ disorders. Sometimes, TMJ problems and pain may develop as a result of daily stress, where the ongoing stress causes tension in facial and jaw muscles. This tension can cause discomfort when chewing, talking, or sleeping, and potentially evolve into a recurring TMJ disorder. Unfortunately, if not properly treated, TMJ pain may worsen over time, and even become a serious quality of life issue.

I have been going to Dr. Abdulla since I was very young. Recently I have been having TMJ problems, to the point that it was becoming difficult to chew my food. I started TMJ physical therapy with Dr. Abdulla and was already feeling much better after my first session! She is very gentle and has the right technology to bring relief (ultrasound and laser acupuncture were part of my session). I will definitely be back for more TMJ sessions!
