Just wanted to give you some quick content on how I approach Temporomandibular Joint Pain. My focus when working with TMJ pain is to assess the major muscles with regards to each person’s discomfort pattern. I do this by taking a look at range of motion, adhesion’s, and particular areas of tenderness in the 4 major muscles of mastication or chewing. I also work the scalp, neck, and shoulder areas, in both posterior and anterior. As always I look for tangible results for my clients in the realm of decreased pain, increase range of motion and overall well being.
Here’s a video that is a good technical overview for some of the specific aspects you should look for in TMJ massage. If this information sounds like something that might help you give me a call for an appointment.
