How Does TMJ Massage Work?
A dentist can help identify the source of the pain with a thorough exam and appropriate X-rays, after which they can refer the patient to a massage therapist. Some TM problems can be relieved with massage, especially if the issue is related to soft tissue. Trigger point therapy can be an effective treatment form for reducing pain and improving function. The TMJ massage treatment is often focused around the neck and shoulders, in most cases the trapezius, sub occipitals and SCM.
