The Bowen TMJ technique, developed by Ron Phelan, focuses on Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder.
Referred to as the “hidden imposter,” it mimics the symptoms of many other musculoskeletal problems.
Dysfunction of the TMJ typically affects around 30% of the population. Symptoms such as neck pain, back pain, headaches, migraines, clicking jaw, and bruxism are the most common problems.
The TMJ has many functions, beyond chewing, swallowing, and talking.
The exact cause of a person’s TMJ disorder is often difficult to determine. Pain may be due to a combination of factors, such as genetics, arthritis, or jaw injury. Some people who experience jaw pain may clench or grind their teeth (bruxism).
