Many people who have TMJ are looking for TMJ home treatments or remedies. TMJ pain can result from a number of conditions and underlying issues. Therefore, it is a very common problem. The TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is also a very unique joint. Most joints offer one form of movement. For example, your knuckles are a hinge joint and your shoulders are a ball and socket joint.
The TMJ is unique in that it functions as both a hinge joint and a sliding joint. That means you can open and close your mouth but also slide your jaw from side to side. Unfortunately, that extra mobility comes with a price – there are more things that can go wrong with such a complicated joint.
