Temporomandibular joint disorder (commonly known as TMJD) is a painful condition that causes pain and tenderness in the face, jaw, neck, and shoulders. TMJ can be caused by the muscles that control movement of the jaw, as well as arthritis in the joint, stress, and teeth clenching and grinding. Our approach to massage therapy for TMJ is to focus on the muscles and fascia involved in chewing and jaw clenching, helping to relax the muscles as well as reducing stress that can aggravate issue.
- Reduce pain
- Decrease stress
- Improve ability to use jaw
- Release "stuck" jaw
We typically achieve the best results with TMJ massage therapy when it is paired with our TMJ chiropractic care. Our chiropractors and massage therapists work closely together to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that is tailored to each individual patient. When used together, these therapies are even more effective at relieving pain and restoring normal function to the TMJ.
