Massage Relevance To TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint)

November 28, 2017

 

The pain of TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint) can be terrible. Jaw movements such as smiling, chewing, and talking are often painful. With the stress that most of us face every day, jaw pain problems are becoming very common. Most people do not realize that they cling or cringe their teeth, and many do it even while they sleep.

 

It is often a dentist or dental hygienist who draws our attention to the fact that we grind our teeth, or when headaches occur more frequently.

 

dysfunction syndrome (DGT) can be caused by jaw misalignment, dental problems, stress, whiplash, misalignment of the neck or inflammation.

 

Some symptoms may include pain in the jaw or bursting in or around the joint, headache, ear pain, dizziness, nausea, pressure or sinuses, squeezing pain, even the ability to open or close your mouth reduces or pain when chewing or biting.

 

Doctors or dentists often perform examinations or x-rays to diagnose the problem and determine the process of treatment.

 

Massage therapy can help realign areas where the problem occurs to relieve muscle tension and relax muscles by changing trigger point areas around the jaw and neck.

 

It is possible to massively reduce the pain and discomfort associated with jaw pain through massage.
