The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, connects the jaw to the skull. It is one of the most problematic joints in the body, as about 35 million North Americans are believed to suffer from TMJ pain, a condition that’s also often referred to as “TMJ disorder.”
TMJ pain varies based on the individual, but it’s usually characterized by either headaches, facial pain, neck pain, ringing in the ears, a clicking sound when the mouth opens/closes and toothaches, among others.
Massage Therapy helps reduce tension around the joint.
Treatments are generally 45 minutes in length with focus on the upper back, neck and facial muscles, all of which can be affected by an imbalanced temporal mandibular joint.
