Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) specific treatment consists of an assessment and treatment of the muscles associated with the function of the jaw.  The shoulders, neck, and face are all incorporated into the extra-oral portion of the treatment.  Swedish techniques are generally used to help reduce muscle tension.  The intra-oral portion of the TMJ treatment involves treatment of the same jaw muscles, however they are treated directly from the inside of the mouth.  Gentle techniques are performed with non-latex gloves.  Clients that suffer from tension headaches and tooth, jaw or ear pain stemming from muscular tension, often feel relief from their symptoms after a TMJ treatment.
