Medical Massage Therapy for TMJ Disorder
Did you know the right kind of expertly trained and focused medical massage therapy can help with TMJ disorder and jaw pain? Temperomandibular joint disorder, or dysfunction, can be identified by pain and stiffness in the jaw, face and neck. TMJ disorder affects the temporomandibular joint, which connects your jaw bone to the side of your skull. People may also experience pain and discomfort more when chewing or swallowing.
Studies have shown that focused clinical massage therapy can help reduce, and in many cases, eliminate the effects of TMJ disorder with regular sessions. These sessions can also help reduce or eliminate lock jaw. Reduction in pain and stiffness, ability to chew easier are all common improvements reported with targeted massage therapy for TMJ dysfunction. One of the best benefits of medical massage and manual therapy for TMJ disorder is that often patients avoid any surgeries.
