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 went to see Dr. Abdulla for TMJ and sleep apnea. I had recently got back from a trip and thought I had hurt my neck on a pillow, I had been to see a chiropractor 3 times to no avail.
She believed my neck hurt so bad from the TMJ. (I just thought I had a clicking jaw). I was going to go for physical therapy. She said just give me 4 visits for TMJ and if you are not feeling better then go to PT. My neck was feeling better after 2 visits! My neck pain is gone and I am sleeping so much better since I started wearing the mouth piece for sleep apnea. I highly recommend Dr. Abdulla!
