Re: tmj pain from whiplash

I have crackles in my neck too and have an old whiplash injury from years ago but I'm older and also have some arthritis in the neck. the neck does affect the jaw. Have you tried PT for ultrasound and maybe neck posture exercises. A lot of times correcting the posture can help, and PT can help with that. Maybe the dentist can order you some PT.
