Osteopathy for TMJ & Jaw Pain in Sutton Coldfield
Jaw Pain Treatment
Jaw discomfort is occasionally referred to as temporomandibular disorder (TMD) due to its association with the affected joints. These joints, known as the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), are located just in front of your ears, serving as the pivotal connection between your jaw and skull.
Typically, pain manifests in this region and can sometimes extend to the cheeks, jaw, and even the ears. It’s not uncommon for your jaw to produce clicking sounds when you open or close your mouth, and you may experience a sensation of it being “stuck” or restricted. Individuals grappling with jaw pain might also contend with headaches and tinnitus.
Jaw pain typically arises from either the restriction or excessive movement of one or both temporomandibular joints (TMJ). Osteopathic intervention seeks to optimize the function of this region by addressing the intricate network of muscles, joints, and connective tissues that surround it. Treatment methods may encompass gentle massage and mobilisation of the neck, upper back, and facial muscles.
