TMJ Disorder Treatments

Do you suffer with jaw pain when you talk or chew? Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) can place alot of strain on the jaw leading to pain and further complications.

The TMJ joint is responsible for connecting the jaw bone to the cranium (skull). When this area becomes overworked, it can cause a lot of stress on the disc resulting in popping and clicking of the jaw, jaw pain and migraines.

Luckily jaw joint pain can be relieved using therapy to retrain and restore the muscles to their natural function.

Jaw Joint Pain Therapy

TMJ disorders can occur when:

  • The disk erodes or moves out of its proper alignment
  • The joint is damaged from impact
  • The muscles that stabilise the joint become fatigued from overworking, for example if you grind your teeth

Treatments to restore your jaw joint
Most treatment options focus on restoration of the joint by eliminating muscle spasms and restoring correct co-ordination.

Your options include:

  • Wearing an oral appliance to prevent the jaws from grinding throughout the night
  • Neuromuscular therapy to relax the joint, and to restore and retrain the muscles back to primary function.
  • Surgery – this should be a last-resort treatment option.
