Treatment

The good news is that appropriately trained massage therapists are in a unique position to help sufferers of this condition get out of pain. Disorders of the muscles of the TMJ are the most common complaints by TMJ patients.

The two major observations concerning the muscles are pain and dysfunction. Simple cases of this type of TMJ are caused by overuse of the muscles.

Pain in the joint will often be coming from the soft tissues surrounding it.

Even if there is a physical problem with the disc or the joint itself the muscles will often be involved and a significant reduction in pain and improved function can be achieved with a combination of advanced techniques including trigger point work, craniosacral techniques and myofascial release.
