Things that trigger TMJ disorders
Temporomandibular Joint Disorders damage the joint where your jaw attaches to your skull. Usually known as TMJ, the disorder causes pain, soreness and muscle tension.
– Using teeth for the wrong reasons like chewing pens and ice worsens TMJ pain.
– Grinding teeth and going through stress puts pressure on your jaw, causing inflammation and tension in the jaw.
– Bad posture like hanging your head and hunching your back causes more tension in the jaw.
