What causes TMJ pain?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the lower jaw to the bones of the skull. A condition known as Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) can cause pain and stiffness in the TMJ. When it is subjected to trauma such as an injury to the neck or head, or aggravated by clenching or teeth grinding, TMJ disorder (TMD) arises.

Get Your Pain Under Control

The Epic™ works as a therapeutic device that helps to temporarily increase your blood circulation as well as to temporarily relax your muscles. The Epic is then able to temporarily relieve joint pain and stiffness. Treatment takes approximately 5-10 minutes for each area, so it’s fast and convenient for people with busy schedules. Patients can come in for additional treatments as needed by your healthcare provider.

Between 5-12% of people in the United States experience pain associated with TMJ disorder.
