As many as 10 million people in the United States are affected by TMJ disorder. Migraines, ear discomfort, and vertigo are some associated symptoms of TMJ. Recognized by its customary clicking and face pain, TMJ can be very painful and distracting. Traditional medical treatments have included pain meds, steroids, and anesthesia. Recent treatments have focused more on self-help and natural remedies. A professional massage using techniques such as craniosacral therapy and myofascial release often work the best. Other treatments which have proven helpful include:

Jaw Exercises - Slowly and carefully widen and open the mouth, this can alleviate the clicking noise and prevent locking. Check with your physician for proper techniques.

  • Heat - Properly placed heat packs can reduce muscle spasms and increase circulation.
  • Cold - Ice or cold compresses can be applied to painful area to reduce swelling and lessen pain. Never apply ice directly to skin and never longer than 15 minutes.

Many of our patients have experienced significant relief from TMJ pain and "jaw tightness" after a MFR treatment by Jennifer.  Please call us or visit www.myofascialrelease.com for more information.
