Jaw Pain

The temporomandibular joint is the medical term for the paired joints connecting the upper and lower jaws. As one of the most complex joints in the body, it is the source of a variety of disorders, which leads to the common use of this same term to describe pain or other dysfunction of these joints. Fortunately for those suffering from TMJ syndrome, acupuncture offers one of the most effective alternative medicine treatments, and is able to address many of these aspects of temporomandibular joint disorder.
