Head, Neck, and Face
Here, we examine the temporomandibular joint (TMI) for swelling, tenderness, or inflamed joints. This is checking the connection between your jaw and cheekbone. You’ll be asked to open and close your mouth and jut your jaw forward and back.
Next, we move to the neck to check for symmetry. We will check for any bulges, lumps, or tender areas. You’ll move your head from side to side and up and down.
