Where exactly is my TMJ?
Try This: Locate your TMJ?
TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint. It is essentially your jaw joint. To locate your TMJ….
- Place your pointer finger on your face, just in front of the middle of your ear and right under your cheekbone.
- Now open and close your jaw.
Can you feel the movement of the jaw joint against your skull? That’s your TMJ, the point where your lower jaw attaches to the skull.
Your TMJ is constantly enduring everyday stresses and because of this, numerous symptoms may develop. You may experience pains such as headaches, tingling in your fingers and the back of your hand and pain in your neck or shoulders.
