11/29/21 Myofascial Release Treatment for Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ)

It’s estimated that tens of millions of men, women, and children suffer from TMJ, and many have no knowledge of their TMJ condition or how to seek TMJ treatment with Myofascial Release in San Diego. Headaches and pain are the most common complaints from those afflicted with TMJ. Around 80% of patients with a TMJ disorder complain of a debilitating headache, and over 40% report some kind of facial pain.

Your TMJ condition may unfortunately only worsen with time if you do not seek treatment from a TMJ Myofascial Release Specialist, doctor, or dentist. Without proper TMJ treatment, you can experience increasing joint damage or inflammation, and further wear and breakdown of your teeth, which typically leads to an increase in muscle contractions and consequently increased head, neck and facial pain. If your jaw is not correctly aligned, you’ll add wear and tear every time you speak, chew, swallow, and yawn: even while you sleep.

A myofascial release principal theory is “Find the pain, look elsewhere for the cause”, as the fascial web causes many pain patterns to be referred from the primary site. What are the treatment options for TMJ?

One of the most effective treatments for TMJ is receiving Myofascial Release. The best Myofascial Release in San Diego is at Dynamic Bodywork and Wellness.
