How Face & Jaw Pain Can Be the Result of TMD

When a person has TMD, the muscles in their jaw are unable to fully relax. This can be due to several reasons, but the end result is that the muscles overwork themselves and become sore. It’s easy to see how this could lead to jaw pain, but this tension can also radiate into the muscles of the face because everything above your neck is very interconnected. Even though the jaw is the problem, it’s sometimes the face where the pain initially appears.
