The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jaw to the side of the head and plays an important role in essential bodily functions such as chewing, talking and yawning. Patients with TMJ dysfunction may experience painful and stiff jaw muscles and limited movement. While it may be difficult to determine the exact cause, injuries, arthritis and joint problems can lead to TMJ dysfunction. A physical therapist may use ultrasound, moist heat, and ice to reduce the intensity of symptoms. He may also recommend exercises to strengthen and stretch the jaw muscles.
