TMJ Disorder Treatment


Massage therapy treatment can provide a non-surgical solution to your TMJ problem.

The pain associated with TMJ Disorder is thought to be caused by displacement of the cartilage at the point where the lower jaw connects to the skull. This causes pressure and stretching of the associated sensory nerves.

Patients who have been treated for years for migraine headache pain have typically undergone a wide variety of diagnostic tests and treatments, including MRI studies, expensive drugs, and other therapies, often with little or no improvement. Using massage therapy to treat the TM joint can provide relief from migraine headache pain.

To eliminate TMJ Disorder and its symptoms, the lower jaw is brought forward non-surgically, using a dental applicance worn at night. This appliance repositions the lower jaw, reestablishing the natural space at the rear of the joint and allowing the ball (condyle) to hinge on the cartilage at the front of the socket (fossa).

Using massage therapy to treat TMJ disorders makes surgery for TMJ unnecessary, except in rare cases.

For many people, surgery does not provide a long-term solution. It can even make the headache pain associated with TMJ Disorder worse.

Massage therapy treatment from a registered massage therapist, the world's most thoroughly trained practitioners of manual therapy, may provide correction of the problem with no pills, no surgery, and no unwanted side effects.

At Medspa Health Centre, we offer a comprehensive variety of referral and non-referral massage therapy treatments, including:
