How Myotherapy can help TMJ?

When muscles become tight, they go into spasm which can lead into TMJ pain. Tight muscles in the jaw can refer into the neck and sometimes even the ear and surrounding muscles, also known as “referred pain".

Myotherapy focuses on detecting and deactivating trigger points in the muscular system, which eliminates muscle tension and painful referral of pain in other areas of the body.

Myotherapists aim to prevent musculoskeletal pain from coming back through the following methods:

  • Manual Therapy techniques - soft tissue and deep tissue massages to improve blood flow and circulation

  • Stretching and Strengthening exercises to support the jaw, neck and postural muscles.

  • Functional cupping to improve blood flow and circulation through different layers of tissue.

  • Dry needling the TMJ and surrounding muscles to alleviate pain.

  • Internal pterygoid release, going in through the mouth with a glove relieving deep muscular pain.
