A less common, but very debilitating disorder that results from whiplash is temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction.

TMJ dysfunction usually begins as pain, clicking and popping noises in the jaw during movement. If not properly evaluated and treated, TMJ problems can continue to worsen and lead headaches, facial pain, ear pain and difficulty eating.

Many Chiropractors are specially trained to treat TMJ problems or can refer you to a TMJ specialist.
