Massage for TMJ Dysfunction, or Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, may sound like something out of an episode of House, MD, but those that have this know that the pain that comes with it is no laughing matter. It is a serious condition that causes serious pain and discomfort to those afflicted.
The temporomandibular joint is the area right in front of the ear. This is where the upper jaw and lower jaw come together and it allows your jaw to open and close. We all use it to bite, chew, talk, and yawn making it one of the most used joints in your body. So when pain is caused by talking or chewing, the pain is frequent and can be debilitating. This is why it is not laughing matter, because even laughing can hurt. We all need to laugh because it is good for the soul.
Causes of this can be many things such as misaligned teeth, grinding of your teeth, excessive gum chewing, or even having to hold a phone to your head with your shoulder at work. Symptoms include head and ear aches, ringing in your ears and even dizziness. Not a great way to live day in and day out.
Come in and find out what a therapeutic massage for TMJ Dysfunction can do for you. Allow yourself to feel good when do the daily tasks that we all take for granted. What do you have to lose, but pain and discomfort?
