What is TMJ?

TMJ stands for temporomandibular (tem-puh-roe-mun-DIB-u-lur) joint.  The disorder referred to by the same acronym is characterized by a variety of symptoms, which include pain and tenderness in your jaw and/or around your ear, locking of the joint, aching facial pain, and difficulty or pain while chewing.  TMJ disorders may also cause a clicking sound or grinding sensation when you open your mouth.  These disorders can be caused by a variety of factors, including whiplash, jaw clenching/teeth grinding, genetics and arthritis, but it is often not easy to determine the root cause.  TMJ disorders are often temporary and can be managed, but sometimes require surgery.

How can TMJ massage help?

Massage can relieve the pain of TMJ disorders, and relax the muscles of the jaw, allowing your body to begin to heal.  Massage can also help prevent and relive migraine headaches and stiff neck, both things that TMJ disorders can contribute to or be affected by.  If you have difficulty chewing or a locking jaw, massage can also ease these symptoms and improve mobility of the jaw.
