TMJ Dysfunction and Jaw pain

TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint and refers to the two joints that connect your jaw to your skull. These joints are the hardest working joints in the body and work in symmetry to allow for opening and closing of the mouth as well as forward, backward and sideway movements of the lower jaw.

 

The TMJ is surrounded by many muscles, which hold the joints in place and support the TMJ to work effectively with chewing (mastication) and speaking. 

 

When these two joints are out of alignment, it can cause muscle spasm and lead to many problems, such as pain in the jaw joints, clicking or popping of the jaw joints or limited opening of your mouth. We commonly refer to this as TMJ dysfunction.

 

What can cause TMJ Dysfunction?

Research into the causes of TMJ dysfunction is still ongoing but it generally seems to be caused by a wide number of things and in most cases, it is caused by a combination of the following:

Stress

Grinding/clenching of the jaw (Bruxism)

Forward head posture

Suppression of emotions or repression of anger

Injury to the jaw or facial area

Whiplash /blows to the head

Arthritis in the joint itself

Movement of the disc or cushion in the jaw joint

TMJ DYSFUNCTION 

Here is a check list of common symptoms:

  • Headaches

  • Clenching or grinding of the teeth

  • Clicking or popping sensation when opening & closing the mouth

  • Pain or discomfort in or around the jaw joint

  • Dull aching sensation or feeling 'tired' in the face

  • Neck, shoulder or upper back pain

  • Numbness or tingling of the fingers

  • Pain behind the eyes

  • Earaches or ringing of the ears (Tinnitus)

Head Massage

Service Description

This is a bespoke treatment protocol. 

Working across the whole body alongside comprehensive neck, face and scalp massage.

An holistic treatment that aims to release fascial tension in the body. 

 

We are all CONNECTED by FASCIA

Fascia surrounds every cell, muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel in the body, creating a three-dimensional web which spreads from head to toe.

Through life, our fascia becomes restricted and tight causing pain and malfunction.

 By unwinding the fascia throughout the body using Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy and Remedial Massage we can melt tension, reduce jaw pain, headaches and migraines, tinnitus and facial pain and help clients return to health and wellness. 

TMJ Massage Therapies is a whole Body Approach to TMJ Dysfunction.

Treatment will sometimes include intra oral work on the masseter and pterygoid muscles, when appropriate and will be fully discussed and explained at the outset of treatment if deemed necessary.

(All treatments are done with informed consent.)

This is a gentle and holistic treatment that allows you to relax.

An initial follow up within 2-3 weeks is recommended.
