The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint where the mandible (the lower jaw bone) meets the skull.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint where the mandible (the lower jaw bone) meets the skull. When the tension in the fascial membranes inside the skull is out of balance, it can create abnormal patterns of mechanical stress on the cartilage layers of the TMJ. This can cause the jaw to click or pop and over time can begin to wear away the protective cartilage on the inside of the joint.
Gentle manual therapy techniques can resolve excess tension in the fibers that hold the bones of the skull together, reducing or eliminating jaw pain, clicking, and popping. People find this therapy extremely relaxing and are often pleasantly surprised at how effective it is.
If you are having jaw pain or if you have been diagnosed with temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD), please call me. I have helped many people with jaw pain and chances are good I can help you too!
