Temporomandibular joints (TMJ) Release Therapy
TMJ pain/ disorders are the result of inflamed and painful chewing muscles of the jaw, which usually occur from grinding the teeth, clenching the jaw, tight neck muscles, increased stress, or jaw trauma. TMJ disorders can manifest as jaw or tooth pain, headaches, ear ache or ringing in the ears, neck pain or/ and eye pain. It can be a once-in-a-while issue but also can be a chronic condition.
The treatment will involve remedial/ deep issue/ myofascial release massage to the neck, jaw and muscles of the head. Sometimes this might also include massage of upper shoulder muscles.
