Many factors can lead to pain in the upper body, jaw dysfunction being one of them. From stress clenching patterns, overuse of inappropriate jaw movements and dental disruptions, we see clients experiencing headaches, pain in around the jaw and excessive tension and stiffness in the upper back and neck.
TMJ treatments are unique for each person. Discovering the origin of dysfunction allows us to develop specialized plans that offer both relief of symptoms and education on prevention and development of new patterns of posture and movement. We work alongside dental practices and other healthcare practitioners to help clients create the best plan to get rid of their pain and get back to their lives.
Treatments can consist of both intra-oral and include full body massage therapy techniques to help discover postural imbalances and restrictions in mobility and tissue restrictions. Feeling positive effects both during and following treatment is always our focus and prioritizing long term symptom relief.
