TMJ pain usually occurs from grinding of the teeth or clenching the jaw. TMJ pain can manifest

as jaw or tooth pain, headaches, ear ache or ringing in the ears, neck pain and/or eye pain.


Many times TMJ pain will occur after dental work, from increased stress or from a trauma to the



Muscle therapy is the perfect treatment for releasing the tension in the jaw muscles and

re-aligning the tempormandibular joint.



Once this tension is released headaches and neck pain will usually subside.​​​​​​​​​​

neck and jaw muscles. Active release techniques to the jaw and neck muscles including intra-oral

massage to the muscles inside the mouth. The medial and lateral Pterygoid muscles whcih are

located inside the mouth are major jaw muscles. Releasing these muscles can alleviate much of your jaw pain.
