What to expect during a TMJ Syndrome Massage:
The Massage Therapist will inspect the jaw and go through ranges of motion, using Active Isolated Stretching to strengthen the jaw where it is weak, and to bring balance to both sides of the jaw. The Massage Therapist will also focus on relieving stress and tension in the upper body which can be a underlying cause to TMJ Syndrome. The Massage Therapist will go inside of the mouth with gloves on to do Trigger Point release to the Masseter muscle inter orally. The Masseter muscle is the strongest muscle in the body, it’s primary job is to chew. This muscle is known as the “clenching muscle”. The most trigger points, or points of pain and spasm, collect in this little but strong jaw muscle. The Massage Therapist will also lightly massage the gums and stretch the cheek. The amount of time spent inside the mouth will be anywhere from 10-20 minutes. You will likely feel instant relief and freed up movement and motion of the jaw after the inter oral Massage. You will also likely feel soreness for a day or 2 after the Massage. Use ice on the jaw, neck, and face to alleviate soreness. After the first day or 2 you should feel better than before the Massage. You should reschedule as soon as the pain begins to creep back. The Massage Therapist will instruct you on how to self massage the jaw, inside and out, and give you exercises to do at home. Home care will enhance the effects of Massage Therapy.
If you are experiencing jaw pain with associated headaches and muscle aches you may have TMJ Syndrome. Massage Therapy by skilled and knowledgeable Massage Therapists can help relieve TMJ Syndrome. It is recommended you check with your Physician before starting Massage Therapy treatments for TMJ Syndrome.
