About TMJ & TMJ Relief

About TMJ - What is TMJ?

TMJ  dysfunction is a painful condition involving the Temporo-mandibular Joint - the joint in the jaw.  Also known as TMD (Temporomandibular Dysfunction).  


With TMJ pain (sometimes severe) arises in the jaw area,  with  numerous causes, including the following:

Common TMJ Symptoms

Some or all of the following may be present with TMJ dysfunction:

CranioSacral Therapy for TMJ Relief

While splints and mouthguards can be of some temporary relief while being worn at night during sleep, CranioSacral Therapy can potentially offer lasting TMJ relief of pain and other symptoms.


When TMJ dysfunction is caused by stress or emotional factors, which is common, CranioSacral Therapy is very effective at reducing the tensions present in the jaw and surrounding areas, as CranioSacral Therapy has a deeply relaxing effect on the body.

 

CranioSacral Therapy is also effective in relieving the specific imbalances in  the mouth and jaw which are causing the TMJ dysfunction.  Abnormal restrictions or tension patterns in the bones and soft tissue of the jaw, the mouth, gums, and hard palate (roof of the mouth) can be released, bringing the jaw back into more optimal  functioning, allowing pain to go away.


In my experience over the years working with people suffering from TMJ dysfunction, I have found CranioSacral Therapy to be very effective - offering relief to some degree from the initial session in many cases.


And while clients have reported rapid and lasting pain relief through CranioSacral Therapy, please note that the severity and longevity of your symptoms will play a part in the timeframe to obtain relief.


If you’re experiencing TMJ symptoms or Jaw Pain, and would like to find out if CranioSacral Therapy could be of benefit to you, please contact us for a Complimentary Consultation.
