The joint is tasked with helping you open and close your mouth, chew, and speak. Improper functioning can be very painful and lead to headaches, followed by restricted mandibular movement and even noises from the temporomandibular joint movement.

What is TMJD?

Think of the TMJ as a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. Improper functioning of this very important joint will always lead to pain and discomfort. Jaw pain, difficulty chewing, and clicking and locking of the jaw joint are some of the symptoms.

Lifestyle habits and stress are known contributors to tight muscles, and the case is no different for TMJD. If you suffer from excessive stress or grind your teeth, your tight muscles can become even tighter. 

Chewing gum, poor posture, reading in bed, cradling a phone between your ear, sitting at a desk are just a few other activities that contribute to TMJD by straining your neck and shoulders.

 

Here is how our therapies can alleviate TMJD symptoms:

  • Relaxing the muscles in the face
  • Restoring balance in the muscles in the neck & jaw
  • Restore healthy tissue quality in both muscle and fascia around the affected area
