TMJ Jaw Pain When the jaw muscles are overly tight or imbalanced, manual therapy works well to help restore normal muscle tone and balance between the TMJ muscles.  Medical massage therapy, a Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), is highly recommended by physicians as a drug-free, nonpharmacological treatment to improve acute, subacute, or chronic TMJ pain (Temporomandibular joints - joining your lower jaw to your skull). It is one of the most amazing modality in relieving masseter muscles of the jaw to help you talk, eat, or open the mouth too widely (such as yawn or for dental procedure). There are a number of muscles which attach to and surround this joint that are involved in mastication besides other facial movements engaging the jaw. Extreme chronic tension in the muscles connected with and surrounding the TMJ can cause not only local pain perception in the area of the jaw itself, but can also set-up pain referral patterns (through trigger points) causing regular experiences of headaches, migraines, Bruxism that is involuntary teeth grinding or jaw clenching, and gum or tooth related pain. At Wake Medical Massage, your NC board certified and licensed medical massage therapist specializes in myofascial pain management and trigger point therapy to help mobilize and relieve soft tissues associated with jaw, cranial, neck, and shoulders.
