Clemson and Florida State slugged it out on the football field Saturday night, but researchers from the two universities are working together off the field to prevent widespread joint disorders. The collaboration allows for advancement in the early diagnosis of human joint degeneration. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, about 35 million Americans suffer from TMJ disorders—causing pain in and around the jaw joint and nearby muscles affecting people‚Äôs ability to eat, chew, swallow, make facial expressions and breathe.
