Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) : Jaw Pain
Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is probably one of the most used joints in the body and without them we would be unable to talk, eat, yawn, kiss or express ourselves as we know it.
The TMJ is a hinged joint, formed between the jaw bone (mandible) and the skull (temporal bone) on either side of the face. The joint has a small cartilaginous disc that sits in between the two bones to help with stability, movement, and shock absorption in the jaw.
Jaw pain, clicking and headaches are very common and annoying problems associated with the TMJ and may be associated with conditions known broadly as Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)
Disorders in this area can result in many symptoms including:
- Pain around the jaw and/or ear
- Difficulty opening your mouth, yawning, chewing
- Clicking, popping, snapping or other joint noises
- Locking jaw
If you, or someone you know is experiencing any of the above symptoms, you can read more here.

Sore Elbow? It Might Be Tennis Elbow
Tennis elbow is a common condition we treat as physios. Contrary to the name, we rarely see it in tennis enthusiasts.
Tennis elbow is a common condition in those who gym regularly and use the computer for extended periods (desk workers, writers, uni students).
The symptoms of tennis elbow are :
- Weakness when using your hand
- Pain in your outer elbow, forearm or wrist, especially when twisting and gripping objects
- Aching pain that travels down from the elbow towards the wrist
- Tight muscles in your forearm
- Throbbing pain
- Difficulty gripping objects like a knife and fork, writing with a pen, twisting a door handle or holding a mug
If this sounds like you, read more about tennis elbow here.
