Understanding TMJ Disorders
The temporomandibular joint connects your jawbone to your skull and acts as a hinge, allowing you to open and close your mouth. TMJ disorders occur when there’s an issue with the joint itself or the surrounding muscles and tendons, leading to pain and discomfort. Common symptoms include:
- Jaw pain or tenderness
- Difficulty opening or closing the mouth
- Popping or clicking sounds when opening or closing the mouth
- Earaches or ringing in the ears
- Headaches or migraines
- Neck and shoulder pain

“Dr. Nisreen is amazing, she has helped my body a tremendous amount in our short amount of time together and I will continue to see her for treatment as needed. Lovely office. Friendly, professional staff at front desk. Can’t go wrong here – your body will thank you.” – Devon Burton
“I went to Dr. Nisreen Malik three times when I had some ribs out of place to a point that I was almost immobilized by the pain. She is very professional and efficient. After two visits for that issue, my back was feeling a lot better!
I like it when chiropractors aren’t afraid to be firm and “go for it” to get rid of the pain. I have been to a lot of chiropractor in different states I have lived in, and some are definitely better than others, and she is one of the really good ones.” – Amanda Palmer
