Member Spotlight: The TMJ Association
Temporomandibular joint disorders can cause pain and tenderness in the face and jaw area, limited ability in opening of the mouth, clicking or grating sounds in the jaw joint, swelling and many other problems. This is why TMJ disorders need to be diagnosed and treated immediately. The TMJ Association, Ltd. (TMJA), a Research!America member, was founded in 1989 in Milwaukee, WI to improve the quality of health care and lives of everyone affected by Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD), commonly called TMJ. TMD are a complex and poorly understood set of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw joint and surrounding tissues with limitation in jaw movements.
