TMJ - Jaw Pain Sprain Strain Medical MassageClinical/Medical massage therapy is highly recommended by healthcare professionals as an alternative drug-free and non-invasive treatment to relieve chronic TMJ ligament sprain & strain. Several muscles attach to and surround this joint that is involved in mastication besides other facial movements engaging the jaw. Chronic tension in the muscles connected with and surrounding the TMJ can cause local pain perception in the area of the jaw itself and set up pain referral patterns (through trigger points) causing regular experiences of headaches, migraines, and gum or tooth-related pain. Clinical massage helps relieve the masseter muscles of the jaw to help you talk, eat, and open the mouth wider (such as yawn or for dental procedures). At Wake Medical Massage, your NC board certified and licensed medical massage therapist is well trained and specializes in myofascial pain and trigger-point management to help mobilize and relieve soft tissues associated with the jaw, cranial, neck, and shoulders.

TMJ disorder can be a chronic issue that results in constant pain and discomfort. The cause for this chronic condition is relatively subjective, but may be linked to stress fractures, an imperfect bite, tooth grinding, or tooth clenching related to stress. Pain into the upper and lower molars from the masseter muscle can be the source of ongoing tooth pain which can be a challenging treatment. Referred pain and tenderness from masseter trigger points may cause tooth hypersensitivity to any or all stimuli: the force exerted upon the occlusal surfaces of teeth (biting pressure), percussion, heat and cold. Relax! TMJ muscular therapy can act as an effective, non-medicinal and non-invasive way to deal with TMJ discomfort. With the very first TMJ massage therapy session, our clients at Wake Medical Massage, LLC start noticing relief from TMJD symptoms that include:

 Pain that travels through the face, jaw, neck, or ear area

 Stiff jaw muscles

 A jaw that "gets stuck", locked or goes out of place

 Tenderness of the jaw muscles

 Limited movement

 Swelling of the face

 A clicking or popping sound when opening or closing the mouth

 A change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together

 Headaches (often mimicking migraines), earaches, and pain and pressure behind the eyes
