TMJ Disorder Jaw Pain Therapy

The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the area directly in front of the ear on either side of the head where the upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible) meet. The TMJ is used throughout the day to move the jaw, especially in biting and chewing, talking, and yawning.

TMJ disorders are a group of complex problems of the jaw joint also sometimes referred to as myofascial pain dysfunction due to the muscles and joints not working properly together because of unbalanced activity, spasm, held stress or overuse of the jaw muscles.
 
The following are "common symptoms" of TMJ pain and disorders:

Headache: Approximately 80% of clients with a TMJ disorder complain of headache, and 40% report facial pain. Pain is often made worse while opening and closing the jaw. Exposure to cold weather, drafts or air-conditioned air may increase muscle contraction and facial pain.

Ear pain: About 50% of clients with a TMJ disorder have ear pain and no signs of infection. Clients are commonly treated multiple times for a presumed ear infection, which can often be distinguished from TMJ disorder by an associated hearing loss or ear drainage.

Sounds: Grinding, crunching, or popping sounds, medically termed crepitus, are common or clients with a TMJ disorder.  These sounds may or may not be accompanied by pain.

Dizziness: Of clients with a TMJ disorder, 40% report a vague sense of dizziness or imbalance (usually not a spinning type vertigo). The cause of this type of dizziness is not well understood.

Fullness of the ear: About 33% of clients with a TMJ disorder describe muffled, clogged, or full ears. They may notice ear fullness and pain during airplane takeoffs and landings. These symptoms are usually caused by eustachian tube dysfunction, the structure responsible for the regulation of pressure in the middle ear. It is thought that clients with TMJ disorders have hyperactivity (spasms) of the muscles responsible for regulating the opening and closing of the eustachian tube.

Ringing in the ear (tinnitus): For unknown reasons, 33% of clients with a TMJ disorder experience noise or ringing in the ears (tinnitus). Of those clients, half will have resolution of their tinnitus after successful treatment of their TMJ disorder.

Trigeminal neuralgia: Can be related to the misalignment or spasm in and adjacent to the jaw joint, muscles, tendons and especially the nerves. The nervous system junctions at the TMJ joint and therefore any symptoms in the nerves can be relieved by correction to the alignment of the TMJ joint.

Bowen Therapy is an excellent treatment choice for problems of the TMJ as it effectively relieves spasm and inflammation in the related muscles, tendons and nerves that are a response to stress, injury or misalignment. It effectively corrects any chronic joint misalignments by allowing the body to let-go stuck patterns of tension.

The actual Bowen TMJ techniques are really cool, gentle and simple. They often work miracles and people will see a tremendous decrease in pain a few days after their session. It often takes the body 3 to 5 days after a Bowen session to feel the benefits, as the body starts to balance and heal itself. On average I have seen chronic TMJ sufferers start feeling relief in 2 sessions and usually see their problems resolved within 5 sessions.

A research project on the application of Bowen Therapy on TMJ abnormality was started in Durango, Colorado by Dr. John Bauman, DDS. Assessment of masseter tension by bio-feedback, measurement of bite and subjective symptoms were compared before and after treatment. Immediately after the 1st treatment 1/3 of clients felt dramatic relief in some of their symptoms and 20 out of the 22 clients showed significant improvement on the post bio-feedback assessment.

TMJ Pain Relief Therapy

Those who are seeking a natural and safe treatment for jaw pain might want to consider Bowen Therapy.  While not a substitute for obtaining medical advice, Bowen Therapy is an effective, pain and drug-free alternative to conventional medical treatment.

Testimonial from TMJ Sufferer:

"As a result of protracted dental work my right temporomandibular joint went into spasm.  In spite of hot and cold compresses and gentle massage over several days I still could only partly open my mouth.  For example, eating a thick sandwich was out of the question.  Sharon gave me two sessions of Bowen, each of which noticeably released the TMJ until, I was extremely glad to say, normal function of the joint returned."

If you are experiencing jaw pain or TMJ disorder and would like to try Bowen Therapy to be rid of the pain then feel free to contact me. I’ve helped many suffering from this condition.
